She feels the world crashing down around her pink little toes,
She's too young to understand this is the way that it goes.
She thinks love is the boy, who smiles from across the room,
Never will she know the feeling of it being true.

She's the one you see skipping on sidewalks, and dancing on dreams,
As her smile hides her screams.
You can watch her fall just to let her go,
Because there's still everything she'll never let you know.

She thinks he's the one, but she still holds your hand.
There are so many things about her you'll never understand.
She thinks about him at night, and kisses you in the day.
She'd tell you anything but never knows what to say.

She says he's the boy who knows every cliché.
And you're the boy who shows her every which way.
He's the boy who would promise you the very sky.
But you're the boy who makes her start to cry.
You're also the boy with every girl wrapped around your brain.
Every new prize comes with a new game.

But she still packs on her make-up, so you'll shoot her a smile.
Though it's all for him that makes it worth-while.
She pretends she's beautiful, and acts like she cares,
But it's starting to hurt, all the nauseating stares.

She waits by door frames, and smiles in the halls.
Wishing someone were to catch her if she falls.
But she knows you'd never care, because you only think of yourself.
Wondering if you'd be there if she acted like herself.

She keeps her secrets in locked boxes, and throws away the key.
She spends her afternoons sucking cigarettes and drinking hot tea.
She tells you she loves you, her biggest lie.
She thinks of him when you both say goodbye.

But you soon let her go, because you wanted to see her fall.
Making her feel a little more small.
So she throws back her head, and starts to cry,
Understanding how it would feel to die.
