about

She wakes up looks out the window, at a grey sky,
And thinks of the place she used to call home
And she, feels like a stranger, trapped in her own skin
With no way to get out, no way to feel alive

She's a restless soul, Just wanting to go home,
To find the place where she knows she belongs
She closes her eyes, and dreams of a land far away
Where everything was different and she didn't feel this way

And she looks, down at her wrists, ashamed of her scars
Afraid to think she's beautiful, or worth anything at all
She drags herself off to school, with so called friends who are so cruel
And tries to act for once like she's ok

She comes home and puts on, a smiling happy face
She just couldn't bear, mom and dad to see her this way
She locks the door and hides, after saying, goodnight
And reaches for the knife that soothes her pain

And she, lays on her bed, and kisses the world goodnight
Hoping that when she wakes up, everything will be alright
And she, cries out to Jesus, praying that maybe someday
Someone will notice, that she's not ok
