You're not supposed to know of this
You're not supposed to feel a thing
But I've seen how they tear you apart
The alcohol, the cutlery
The words that cripple
And whispers that sting

Little boys and girls erase themselves
With tenderness, yeah, and ease

She stutters steps through dreams
And to relatives it seems
That history just hasn't happened yet
You're more than this to me
You're worth more than you can see
I don't care what the books said, girl
You didn't die in vain

I found you hanging on their words
From the noose you let them
Tie around your neck
It took thirteen years for you
But you count the rest of the aches and pains
And medicines mean nothing
If you can't feel your skin

Little boys and girls
It seems like hell
But worth more than you can take

She stutters steps through dreams
And to relatives it seems
That history just hasn't happened yet
You're more than this to me
You're worth more than you can see
I don't care what the books said, girl
You didn't die in vain

I know a girl who shares her name
With a guardian
She was a saint
She was a saint (x3)

They say she took her life today
But I don't believe a word they say

She stutters steps through dreams
And to relatives it seems
That history just hasn't happened yet
Cause I know a girl who shares her name
With a guardian
Don't be ashamed
She was a saint

    General Commentsomebody i knew in elementary school died, she hung herself, and i just found out today.

    she was only thirteen and i know that she didn't deserve whatever led to her suicide.

    being somebody who's attempted suicide so many times, i can really relate to this song and this song just relates to the situation so well.

    General CommentI think this ones about a girl who killed herself and everyone is ashamed of her for doing so... And he's basically saying that she was a great person so there's no reason to be ashamed. Like... so what if she killed herself... appreciate her for who she was when she was alive.

    General CommentI listened along with the song, and those are mostly right so Im filling in the blanks:

    You're not supposed to know of this
    You're not supposed to feel a thing
    But I've seen how they tear you apart
    The alcohol recovery
    The words that cripple
    And whispers that sting

    Little boys and girls raise themselves
    With tenderness, yeah, and age

    She started steps through dreams
    And to relatives it seems
    That history just hasn't happened yet
    You're worth more than this to me
    You're worth more than you can see
    I don't care what the books had girl
    You didn't die in vain

    I found you hanging on their words
    From the noose you let them
    Tie around your neck
    It took thirteen years from you
    But you kept the rest of the aches and pains
    And medicines mean nothing if you can't feel your skin

    Little boys and girls
    it seems like helping you
    you're more than you can take

    She started steps through dreams
    And to relatives it seems
    That history just hasn't happened yet
    You're worth more than this to me
    You're worth more than you can see
    I don't care what the books had girl
    You didn't die in vain

    I know a girl who shares her name
    With a guardian
    She was a saint
    She was a saint (x3)

    She started steps through dreams
    And to relatives it seems
    That history just hasn't happened yet
    Cause I know a girl who shares her name
    With a guardian
    Don't be a saint
    She was a saint

    General Commentthe only thing i hear differently in this song is

    "I don't care what the book said girl"
    and
    "Little boys and girls
    it seems like helping you
    you're WORTH more than you can take"

    General Commenta lot of their song are questioning god & here im pretty sure its saying how someone killed themselves & it shouldnt be considered a sin to kill yourself if the "loving god" didnt help you, so you shouldnt be punished for it.
