in April 2008 the 19 year old Sarah, member of a church community but unknown to most people, was found dead..


Nothing has changed

Leave Sarah leave.
You've come a long way.
A life without a job
and nowhere to stay.

Leave Sarah leave,
nothing has changed
mother is pregnant
and her boyfriend deranged.

Long is the time gone
when you played on the beach
So tired, young Sarah,
are your dreams out of reach?

An absent father
whom you never knew
and no one to turn to
and nothing to do.

Leave Sarah leave.
