She saw your face across the street
She turned away
‘Cause you’re not something she needs
She’s independent
She’s weak at times
You won’t stop her
You can’t change her mind

She’s got her eyes closed
while you’re outside
She whispers softly
“only children cry”
Along the way home
She stops into the diner

You won’t say you loved her
And she won’t say goodbye

She’s not what the world sees
She’s never been a saint
She’s been hiding in her trench coat
She’s covered scars with paint

Whatever lives inside her is trying to break free
She’s done watching clouds pass by a window
She’s done feeling hopeless when the wind blows
Yeah

You think it’s only about yourself
You forget about her
And what falls from her mouth
You don’t believe me
But I know she wishes
You were by her side
Oh but love changes time

She’s not what the world sees
She’s nowhere near a saint
She’s hides within her trench coat
She’s covers scars with paint

Whatever lives inside her is trying to break free
She’s done watching clouds pass by a window
She’s done feeling hopeless when the wind blows

It’s alright to be beautiful be free
It’s alright she still loves you she still loves you

She saw your face
Across the street
She turned away
And then fell upon her knees
She’s been ripped open a million times
You’ve got to save her
Got to call her mine

She’s not what the world sees
She’s never been a saint
She’s been hiding in her trench coat
She’s covered scars with paint

Whatever was inside of her is trying to break free
She’s done watching clouds pass by a window
She’s done feeling hopeless when the wind blows

    General CommentCasey Frazier is a real poet.
    I haven't heard honest lyrics like his in ages.
    I even bought his album off iTunes.
    I've had iTunes for 2 years and this is the first time I've actually bought something.

    This song is wonderful.
    :')
    But I can't quite figure out what it's about...
