  • She was so clever for her age as a kid
    She took pride in everything she ever said and did
    She was born as an angel
    Ticked every box in the list
    How could someone so beautiful end up like this?

    She was bought up in an everyday council estate
    Had friends and family who were never too far away
    Even as a kid she'd sometimes loose her temper
    And if attentions being given
    Guaranteed she's in the centre

    School was a struggle
    Result of her behaviour
    Excluded for the fights
    The same a few days later
    'Cause when she got angry, she'd flip, see red
    Your too pretty for the violence her mum always said

    She has high aspirations
    She was chasing the dream
    Until her first conviction at the age of fourteen
    She nearly killed a girl just for looking the wrong way
    Smashed her head so hard against the ground
    She was unconscious for days

    Passers by stop to witness the torture
    While she stamped on the head of a policeman's daughter
    No remorse, for the course, of a Magistrates court
    If was everybody else's fault of course

    What you doin' with your night?
    Your too young to ruin your life
    What you doin' with your life?
    Your too young to die tonight

    After that things began to slip out of grip
    And her grades were failing but she didn't give a
    She was top dog at school
    And all the girls were scared
    And when she walked through the corridor all the boys stared

    She craved to be wanted, she didn't care how
    She wanted everything including this guy Ben she liked now
    He was 19, liked fighting, and smoking the green
    He was a dreamer, had a beamer
    She thought he was a dream

    She got his number, Are you ok?
    Text back, Chelsea Price
    It was Monday they agreed to meet up on Friday night
    She played it cool
    The whole week she wondered what to wear
    She planned her jewellery, her make-up
    Her shoes and her hair

    The days went so slow, her school was so boring
    But before she knew it, it was already Friday morning
    She was nervous and scared, but in a good way
    She has no idea that this was no ordinary day
    When she walked down the stairs, it was seven o'clock
    He was coming at eight, she had to iron her top
    Seven forty five came and she looked gorgeous
    Rapunzel let out too early from the fortress

    What you doin' with your night?
    Your too young to ruin your life
    What you doin' with your life?
    Your too young to die tonight

    She gets in the car, says hi, they drive off
    They head to a car park, where he can skin up
    She gets into conversation, nods and smiles
    And she feels so happy and not even shy

    A girl pulls up, she see's Ben and screams
    He puts the car in gear and gets ready to leave
    This girl gets out of the car and stands in front
    She screams, that's my boyfriend, get out you little

    Chelsea turns to Ben who just shrugs
    She don't believe her
    She's never been scared and she's not today either
    She puts her hand on the door and gets out to fight
    She's angry now this bitch has just ruined her night

    The two girls clash, hair pulling, fists flying
    Chelsea see's blood gushing
    The other steps back crying
    Chelsea grins as she thinks she's won
    Then she looks at Ben's face who's completely stunned

    Then. there's a pain in the middle of her stomach
    The bloods on her t-shirt
    The other girl starts running
    Chelsea heart starts pumping, panic sets in more
    As she looks down at the pool of blood
    And there's a knife on the floor

    What you doin' with your night?
    Your too young to ruin your life
    What you doin' with your life?
    Your too young to die tonight

    She hears tight screeches, she's losing too much blood
    Ben's cars gone, he's got a boot full of drugs
    She lies there, eyes wide open, facing the sky
    Thoughts fly out of her mind as she questions why

    Her last movements are the tears she's crying
    She thinks about her family as she lies there dying
    She's alone on her own because of the violence
    Can't hear people or friends or help or sirens
    She whispers I'm sorry, there's no one on the way
    As she returns to an angel, And her soul slips away

    What you doin' with your night?
    Your too young to ruin your life
    What you doin' with your life?
    Your too young to die tonight
