    Lyrics

    She was the prom queen, the world was hers
    With a wave of her hand, whispered words
    Hearts broken by her abilities
    Addicted to the sweetness of a gentle kiss
    Lost in a search for something she might never find
    Never know if she don't try, the results will come in time
    No time to smell the roses, let alone slow dance
    Too many bad memories of forgotten romance
    She walked out slammed the door
    Damn him, she didn't need him
    A child game she had to cloth him feed him
    Alone after so long gave up hope
    Convinced all men were abusive
    Undependable heathens and sold dope
    Mister right wasn't coming
    A fact that she would have to face
    She didn't have no time to waste, she had a man to raise
    No man to chase, sick of living in this blasted place
    No time to sit around weeping like a basket case
    Her son made it all worthwhile
    The only man that got to see her smile
    She reminisced about her lifestyle before the baby came
    She did what responsible people do, she changed

    [Chorus x 2]
    She's a different kinda lady
    She's not often understood

    She was my best friend, my playmate
    Moved in next door just before the first grade
    We ran foot races, climb trees, caught insects
    Before money and sex, powder and x
    Before popularity came so crucial
    She had love and the feeling was mutual
    We used to cut our feet barefooted in chipped glass
    Now we blow smoke as we skip class
    New friends came, and with them came change
    The pressure was all, would lil mama maintain
    She began to drift away, the distance between us grew wider
    Didn't have to speak to me, I could see the hurt inside her
    I hear the words out of her mouth
    But they don't reflect what she really feel
    I've seen the smile before I know it isn't real
    Artificial happiness, superficial friends
    A nonstop whirl wind, when will it all end
    Her eyes roll back, she began to convulse
    They searched for a heartbeat, but she had no pulse
    Autopsy results show she mixed powder and downers
    And none of her new friends were around her
    When her family found her, but a

    [Chorus x 2]
    She's a different kinda lady
    She's not often understood

    She was a young girl seventeen, if I recollect correctly
    A baby with a baby, that baby was me
    She worked everyday still it wasn't enough
    World was rough, ol' girl was tough
    Drop me off in the morning
    Come back and get me in the afternoon
    Free spirits lost being guided by the moon
    Used to take me to church, try to make me a man
    But hard times put drastic changes in plan
    She was out there, every time she got up, she fell again
    In love with a bastard, stay in and out the pen
    Alcoholic addict, never tried to change himself
    Beat her to a pulp, and make her blame herself
    I tried to talk to her, mama you don't have to stay
    Just pack your bags and go, you can walk away
    She tell me about this pain, hoping I'd never experience it
    Baby boy love is some serious shit, I pray for change
    Eventually it came, like rays of light after days of rain
    She turned her life around, walked away never to return
    Still tempted by the fire, just tired of being burned

    [Chorus x 2]
    She's a different kinda lady
    She's not often understood
