Had Been
by David Kraai

With one cry it walked from love
Things that had meant home were taken
A promise had been broken
One a real love should have known

It's body was broken, not like it had been
It's face was sour, not sweet again
It's hair wasn't as bright as it used to had been
This wasn't who it had been
Not who it had been
This was not who it had been

Questions were made and numbers named
Really which was which in the end
The streets were different now they held no friends
This town had lost its luster again because...

It's body was broken, not like it had been
It's face was hard, not soft again
It's hair was dirtier than it used to had been
This wasn't who it had been
Not who it had been
This was not who it had been

Not who it had been
This was not who it had been
Not who it had been
This was not who it had been
