  • Its been five years since I've seen her face
    She's the holy ghost lost without a trace
    And now were left with the what ifs
    Its been five years since she left for LA
    She's an angel with a dirty face
    And it seems to me
    She's a casuality of all the pressure
    That we put on her
    And now we've lost her for good
    Its such a shame shame shame
    That our homecoming queen
    Was a lot like you and a lot like me
    And she never walked on water
    uess no one really saw her

    She was so adored by everyone
    When it came to looks she was next to none
    But loved partying and having too much fun
    Then she hooked up with the wrong someone
    And he promised everything under the sun
    And it seems to me
    She's a casuality of all the pressure
    That he put on her
    And now we've lost her for good
    Its such a shame shame shame
    That our homecoming queen
    Was a lot like you and a lot like me
    And she never walked on water
    'Cause no one really saw her
    Its such a shame shame shame
    That our homecoming queen
    Had a lot to prove and so many to please
    She's just somebody's daughter
    Just looking for somebody to love her

    Well I never knew you
    Wish I could've saved you
    From losers that drained you
    Before you got strung out
    With so much potential
    How could you let us down
    Its such a shame shame shame
    That our homecoming queen
    Was a lot like you and a lot like me
    And she never walked on water
    'Cause no one really saw her
    Shame shame shame
    That our homecoming queen
    Had a lot to prove and so many to please
    She's just sombody's daughter
    Looking for somebody to love her
    She's just somebody's daughter
    Looking for somebody to love her

    Its such a shame shame shame... Writer/s: AUSTIN WINKLER, BRIAN HOWES, LLOYD GARVEY, MARK KING, MICHAEL RODDEN, ROSS HANSON
