Lyrics

She said they're after me no one can save me
The doctors told her to have more babies
She lit a pile of clothes on fire
Heard Hell's door open, screeching tires

She'd love him to the bone then treat him like a stranger
His heart called for her, but his head said danger
He sent the kids to his sister's house
the medics came and pulled her out

Carmella, You never got a chance
Your own head treated you unkind
Carmella, You used to love to dance
I hope you find peace of mind

They gave her a gown blue, speckled white
Locked her door from the outside at night
He worked double shifts to keep her in good care
But you can only get so far on tips and cab fair

As years passed, she was mostly alone
in a state funded home while her kids were growing
And when they called and said she had passed
He held his grief inside like broken glass

Carmella, You never got a chance
Your own head treated you unkind
Carmella, You used to love to dance
I hope you find peace of mind

The day he died we found a written request
To bury him where her body lay to rest
An album of pictures and wedding cards
Two big smiles, who'd know they had it so hard

Carmella, You never got a chance
Your own head treated you unkind
Carmella, You used to love to dance
I hope you find peace of mind
