Snapshot in time of that moment when a young girl knows it is time to give up and move on
Young lass, where can courage be found?
Don't fall down.

Young lass, fear not the heart that lies.
Tears fill the eyes.

Young lass, there is no hope in sight,
Give up this fight.

Set thy whim for a future bright
Moving in and out of his reach
Run then into the distant breach
Don't fall down, tears fill the eyes, give up this fight.
