Mary Gauthier – Karla Faye Lyrics

A little girl lost
Her world full of pain
He said it feels good
She gave him her vein
The dope made her numb
And numb felt like free
Until she came down, down, down
To a new misery

A junkie a whore
Living for the next high
She’d lie cheat and steal
She forgot how to cry
Wide awake for two weeks
Shooting heroin then speed
When she killed in cold, cold blood
All she felt was her need

It’s an eye for an eye
Now you’re gonna die
A tooth for a tooth
It’s your moment of truth
There’s no mercy here
Your stay is denied
Go on and pray, pray, pray
There’s Mercy in the sky

Alone in her cell
No dope in her veins
The killer’d become
Little girl lost again
She fell to her knees
She prayed she would die
On the cold cement floor
She finally cried

And love came like the wind
Love whispered her name
It reached through and held her
Lifted her pain
15 years on death row
Her faith deeper each day
Her last words were “I love you all”
Good-bye, Karla Faye

Now it’s an eye for an eye
And you’re gonna die
A tooth for a tooth
It’s your moment of truth
There’s no mercy here
Your stay is denied
Go on and pray, pray, pray
