Life started like any other girl
Folks thought she would be queen of the world
Sixteen years
Thought she was grown
Packed all things and she left home

Put all her dreams in one suitcase
If she was looking for wrong
She was in the right place
A few years passed before it hit
Found face down in life’s cold pit

For the love of Francis
Bad luck
No hope
Lost chances
She left in the cold of winter
No one can quite remember

For the love of Francis
Took her life
And did it in
Finally used up all her chances
Time’s up for the girl named Francis

You could hear her in the other room
Making love for her money every afternoon
They gave her diamonds
They gave her pearls
Self-respect never knew the girl

As fate would have it
She lost her luck
She lost every lover in her little black book
She spent days and nights going over the facts
They took a part of her love she couldn’t get back

For the love of Francis
Bad luck
No hope
Lost chances
She left in the cold of winter
No one can quite remember

For the love of Francis
Took her life
And did it in
Finally used up all her chances
Time’s up for the girl named Francis

For the love of Francis

It’s time we stopped fooling ourselves
Pretending it’s happening to someone else
I’ve cried a million times
Just for the girl named Francis

For the love of Francis
Bad luck
No hope
Lost chances
She left in the cold of winter
No one can quite remember

For the love of Francis
Took her life
And did it in
Finally used up all her chances
Time’s up for the girl named Francis
