She never smiles when she's sober
It's never genuine at least
And theres a world upon her shoulders
She's got a close little circle
Of friends she barely ever leaves
Because she knows they'll never hurt her
And last night I was Brooklyn bound before
But she changed my mind

She put her and inside her pocket
She wrapped on right around my sleeve
We wondered out into the distance
The smell of smoke and city streets
Side walks, street lights, unfold in front of me

She don't want to sleep
If it's just partially
And she don't want to be here when she's not
Or just a shell to see
But needs her room to breathe
Doctor take away the tears, but don't please
Don't let her leave half heartedly

She never smiles she sober
It's never genuine at least
If I knew a way, I would have shown her
But that night we were falling over our own feet

She don't want to sleep
If it's just partially
And she don't want to be here when she's not
Or just a shell to see
But needs her room to breathe
Doctor take away the tears, but don't please
Don't let her leave half heartedly

She never smiles when she's sober
At least she never shows her teeth

She don't want to sleep
If it's just partially
And she don't want to be here when she's not
Or just a shell to see
But needs her room to breathe
Doctor take away the tears, but don't please
Don't let her leave half heartedly

She don't want to sleep
If it's just partially
And she don't want to be here when she's not
Or just a shell to see
But needs her room to breathe
The world may never know,
What you've seen, but you could show
That we are here and we're not alone
