My window pane was leaking glass
I cut my arm and then you laughed
I jumped from just one story high
And now I’m stuck here till I die
Now I’m stuck here till I die
Now I’m stuck here till I die

Don’t you remember me?
I swear I knew you
When I knew you there
We loved and learned under the sun
We had more fun than anyone
She’s 8 years old and moving out
She’s half way across the country now
She’s smarter than the lot of us
She doesn’t break or bend or fuss

Maybe she’s in Heaven now
Or maybe she’s back here somehow
She’s wearing all the finest clothes
And kept in jewelry head to toe
It isn’t possible to know
There is no ending to the show
The grand finale, big hurrah
One day we’re here, the next we’re not

Oh, look what I’ve done here
Oh, look what I’ve done here
Let these thoughts creep in
Let them seep right in
Let these thoughts creep in
Let them seep right in

I hope she doesn’t have to see
What became of her family
Her father left after she died
Her brothers cried and cried and cried

She took your man, I took your name
The miracle that never came
But oh, her life was beautiful
She’ll live through me and live through you

I used to sing you lullabies
I’d hold you when you’d start to cry
I was your mother and your friend
Don’t you remember me from then?
I was your mother and your friend
Don’t you remember me from then?

    General Commentfantabulous song.
    why not more comments i ask?
    i think it may be about her sort of casting off her old life, and...

    this is nearly possible to explain.
    i suck, i know.
    good song though.
    yes siree.
    okay i'm done feeling and looking moronic.

    General CommentIn the interview John and Michelle recently did about the new record, Michelle described the song as being about several different things, including "a friend [of hers] that passed away, a little girl [she used to babysit] for, death and reincarnation" and basically just wondering about what happens after death.

    General CommentI thinks ita about a girl who committed suicide

    and her family broke apart because they could not deal with it

    General CommentThis song is so awsome it's like totally my favourite sung by Michelle and i really like how it's so diferent from all the other songs she sings, not that i think the others are bad. I love all Straylight runs songs they rock.

    General CommentThis is honestly the first song sung by Michelle that I've truly liked by Straylight. I hope the album holds more of the same.

    General CommentFor some reason this song reminds me of the Flowers in the Attic series.
