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.

CHORUS
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
