Don't tell her lies, 'cause she'll believe.
Boy, she's still got baby teeth,
And she hears the things you say,
When you think that she's asleep.
She grew up overnight, cause that's your way
And that's not right to do to your girl.


She's alone now,
She don't know how
But she'll find her way home,
She's home, home now.


You don't know how,
And you see how
Much pain you made her feel,
It's real, real now.


Don't try to hide, cause she will see,
Boy she's all you'll never be,
And she dreams of all the worlds,
That you told her she can't reach.
She stood up to you one day, cause that's her right,
And that's the way you taught your girl.


She's alone now,
She don't know how
But she'll find her way home,
She's home, home now.


You don't know how,
And you see how
Much pain you made her feel,
It's real, real now.
It's real now.

    General CommentThis song is so cute and sad. I think it's how a father faces the consequences of emotionally abusing his daughter for so long. Her father was so distant from his daughter, he would lie to her, put her down and even act as if she wasn't there 'she hears the things you say, when you think she's asleep'...now she's all grown up, she's confused and alone but even though her father never did treat her that well he did leave her some sort of strength to stand up to him and find her own way home- her own world without him. That's how I perceived the song.
