I'll be careful, the young girl said
Her cherry lips the darkest red
Her innocence a halo round her head
As she steeped into the night.
I'll be careful, the young girl called
As cunning men oiled round the floor
She never one did look towards the door
Her dress was all of white.
I'll be careful, the young girl cried
As she swayed her hips from side to side
The vultures looking onward sighed
As she stepped into the light.
I'm being careful! The young girl screamed
As he ripped her dress from seam to seam
The crimson blood is hardly seen
It's just another night.
I thought I was careful, the young girl moaned
The cold night chilling to the bones
He's gone - he's left her all alone
To the mercy of the night.
I tried to be careful, the young girl sighed
Her innocence torn and scattered wide
She felt a kick from deep inside
As she prepared to lose the fight.
No more being careful! The young girl yelled
As from the rafters down she fell
Her unfurling life caused eyes to well
As she plummeted out of sight.
And that young girl now
Though she was brave
She met an early end
For now she rests inside her grave
For her broken innocence to mend.
And the cruel young man
Though he never held the knife
Had ultimately killed the girl
And stole away her life.
And now he lurks, his dagger poised
To destroy another light
His victim laughs, she's unaware
She'll not survive the night
