    *U jus gotta hold on*
    "Mary Anne"

    Bring it on back to the young days when things wasn't so hard
    Playin kickball in the school yard
    The year before kindergarten when memories started at the day care
    All the Little kids used to play there
    We had no worries just hated nap time but fingerpaintin' and playin' tag was fine
    And we would all run around except for this girl
    She stayed in the corner, Yeah her name was Mary Anne
    She missed half of the school days scince the year began
    Never wore a shirt that showed more than her hands
    She rockin' jeans & Long sleeves in like 90 degrees
    You know lil' kids they treat her like she got a disease
    Came in 1 day all her hair was gone
    Said her mamma cut it off cause she did something wrong
    Tears in her eyes when she finally said somethin
    Usually she would get scared and wouldn't say nothin

    Days that went by, she had to cry, wonder why did it happen to me
    Day after day, she slipped away, wonder why did it happen to me

    Elementary she got the seat next to me
    Lucky i wasnt mean like the rest could be
    She treated like an outcast wonder how long she could outlast
    Bein alienated by the whole class
    It was still touch and go with the whole school scenario
    In for days out for weeks still scared to speak
    I wonder if that one time she had tried to tell and the teacher shrugged her off like Oh Well
    I wonder if that shut her down
    Maybe she had no one to turn to
    Maybe this little girl didnt know what to do
    We had a project one week me and Mary Anne a team
    So i invited her to my house for ice cream
    She bangin on the door at the house invite her to sit on the couch
    She looked me in the eyes
    Mary Anne began to cry
    I said what's wrong she said she wanted someone to tell her why

    Days that went by, she had to cry,
    wonder why did it happen to me
    Day after day she slipped away, wonder why did it happen to me

    After that incident she didnt really want to talk to me
    I'd see her in the hall
    Call out but she wouldnt walk with me
    Junior high she got cover up caked up
    You could see the bruises underneath the make - up
    Stories to make up people askin question now
    She breakin down but still no confessions now
    She walk around dazed out lost in another land spaced out
    And as days go by she grows more distant
    Teachers barely aware of her existance
    She in and out more out than in
    And one day i'm in class
    The ambulance pass screechin
    Down by the artroom off to the right in the bathroom
    They found Mary Anne on the floor
    A bottle next to her
    Said she took like 50 pills or more
    And left a note that said she couldnt handle it no more

    Days that went by, she had to cry,
    wonder why did it happen to me
    Day after day she slipped away, wonder why did it happen to me
