The lyrics don't really add anything to the story - I ended up skipping them altogether. You've made the mistake of falling back on lyrics instead of trusting your ability to write a strong character piece - which this easily could've been if you hadn't been fitting Kyra's voice to the song. Sorry, but it didn't work. Your narrative is good - you need to focus a little bit more on checking for typos and not overusing commas, but all-in-all I'd say that you've got a lot of potential. With a small amount of cleaning up, this could be a really strong piece.
You clearly understand the character, and the story you're trying to tell is a good one. Seriously, I enjoyed it. To capture the character as well as you have is brilliant. Well done.
