  • There's no way back from here
    On out
    Only one place left to go
    One place left to go
    Now

    She's crashing like an airplane
    From the sky from the storming rain
    Another pilot she's a flying eight
    Hit her target a kamikaze go up in flames

    This life is taught she must pay
    Pay the price for her mistakes
    I guess she only has herself to blame
    And to her that's the deepest shame

    There's no way back from here
    On out
    Only one place left to go
    One place left to go
    Now

    She was once a princess
    But now she's a mess
    A fiend for a fix like the rest
    Eliciting sex and pocket less
    But she was a sweet fiend never the less
    Back in the day abused as a child
    She was always likely to end up this way
    The past lived in the dark parts of the brain
    And only heroin seemed take away the pain
    So she folded at the voyeur and lit the flame
    Inhale exhale out once again she's on the game
    The unit on her face and going rate
    Just not the name of only herself to blame
    She lives the hell
    But there's a millions other girls just like her
    Shell out in the streets with nothing else to sell
    To these desperate Mel's have it in themselves so

    There's no way back from here
    On out
    Only one place left to go
    One place left to go
    Now

    There's no way back from here
    On out
    Only one place left to go
    One place left to go
    Now

    I been walking alone this dirty road
    Been so long now I just can't tell
    If there's any way back the way I came
    Though I've lost my path is the deepest shame

    I been dragging myself to the lowest of low
    There's such a way I just don't know
    If the path I take is something I can change
    Well if it's in my way is the deepest shame

    There's no way back from here
    On out
    Only one place left to go
    One place left to go
    Now

    There's no way back from here
    On out
    Only one place left to go
    One place left to go
    Now

    There's no way back from here
    On out
    Only one place left to go now Writer/s: ALEXANDER WILLIAM SHUCKBURGH, BEN DREW
