[Originally by Poison]

She stepped off the bus out into the city streets,
Just a small town girl, with her whole life packed in a suitcase by her feet,
But somehow the lights didn't shine as bright as they did on her mama's TV screen,
And the work seemed hard, and the days seemed longer than she ever thought they'd be.

But you know you got to stick to your guns when it all comes down,
'Cause sometimes you can't choose,
It's like heads they win, and tails you're gonna lose.

Win big,
Mama's fallen angel,
Lose big,
Living out her lies,
Wants it all,
Mama's fallen angel,
Lose it all,
Rolling the dice with her life.

Now she found herself in the fast lane, living day to day,
Turned her back on her best friends yeah, and let her family slip away,
Just like a lost soul caught up in the Hollywood scene,
All the parties and the limousines,
Such a good actress, hiding all of her pain,
Trading memories for fortune and fame.

Just a step away from the edge of a fall,
Caught between heaven and hell,
Where's the girl I knew a year ago?

Win big,
Mama's fallen angel,
Lose big,
Living out her lies,
Wants it all,
Mama's fallen angel,
Lose it all,
Rolling the dice with her life.

Too much, too soon, or just a little too late,
'Cause when the ship came in she wasn't there, and it just wouldn't wait.

Win big,
Mama's fallen angel,
Lose big,
Living out her lies,
Wants it all,
Mama's fallen angel,
Lose it all,
Rolling the dice with her life,
Win big,
Mama's fallen angel,
Lose big,
Living out her lies,
Wants it all,
Mama's fallen angel,
Lose it all,
Rolling the dice with her life.
