She looks down to her side, it calls out through her pain
This girl will make them famous, they don't even know her name

And just how much can one girl stand
Before she takes a step
And how much weight can one back bare
Before it breaks the straps
Through the years I've took it off and shrugged it off my chest
Those held close, who know her well, can use the shadow fall

He looks down to his side, it calls out through his pain
This boy will make them famous, they don't even know his name
There was a time when his face shined his smile could fight a room
But now its black beneath this cloud heartbreak learned much too soon

And just how much can one boy stand
Before he takes a step
And how much weight can one back bare
Before it breaks the straps
Through the years I've took it off and shrugged it off my chest
Those held close, who know her well, can use the shadow fall

Beneath the tree, where I once lay, the flowers gone from the bed where I once played
Counting clouds which danced for me
Skies go black
I pray for rain, to clear my face
I pray for wings to fly me from this place

I look to the sky, no answers come to me
Dear God how far I've fallen
How could this happen to me
