Miss Su Li, don’t you waste away,
I can see your pain, every day it’s turning like a wheel
Miss Su Li, where’s your daddy now?
No, I don’t know how I can be the friend you really need

A beautiful life is one step away
But down comes the night, you never stay

There she goes, with her head so high
See the autumn rain falling down
You’d swear she owned the whole damn town
Miss Su Li, don’t you waste away,
I can see your pain, every day it’s turning like a wheel

A beautiful life is one step away
But down comes the night, you never stay

There were simpler times
In supper clubs you moved so fine
Now you’re older and your feet won’t touch the ground again
How’s it gonna end?

Miss Su Li, like a waterfall I can hear them call
Every night they’re calling out your name
There she goes, it’s a battlefield
Every shady deal could be the one that you don’t really need

A beautiful life is one step away
But down comes the night, you never stay

There were simpler times
In supper clubs you moved so fine
Now you’re older and your feet won’t touch the ground again
How’s it gonna end?

Miss Su Li, don’t you waste away,
I can see your pain, every day it’s turning like a wheel
