It tears me up, to see the way that he treats you
To see the way that he brings you down, and now
He’s turning you inside out
It breaks me up, to see the way that you take it
To see the way that he spins you round and round
Turning you upside down
Mockingbird
Mockingbird

Oh, you never know what life may bring
Trust your spirit, find your wings
Find your voice and free it
Let it sing, let it sing

It tears me up, to see the way that he treats you
To see the way that he brings you down, and now
He’s turning you inside out
It breaks me up, to see the way that you take it
To see the way that he spins you round and round
Turning you upside down
Mockingbird
Mockingbird

    General CommentDarius said in his autobiography that this song is about a girl being abused by her father (not sexually) he said you can interpret it about any kind of abuse really but this was what he wrote it about.
