Screaming With a Broken Voice

She never made it to center stage
Her face never owned Cosmo's front page

She still sings to the tattered steering wheel
It's the only way she knows how to deal

That dream burned away in the flames
Her life's hard work smoldered by rain

Three decades have come and now went
No replies to the audition tapes sent

She yells into the steering wheel
Her heart wishes it couldn't feel

Ambition lingers in the smoke
Her mind is strong, but heart is broke

Clouding her sight, masking the day
The life she wants just blows away

Through pity tears she sings on more
Where is that stage she's searching for

When she was young, the world was vast
Flames have engulfed her dream, at last
