She waits for night to swallow the day
She waits for night to swallow the day, and then she says
Gimme a break kid, ‘cause you don’t know anything

Gimme a break kid, ‘cause you don’t know anything about walking in the dark
You’re afraid of the dark. Ever since you were small, a nightlight by your bed,
Eyes shifting in your head.

Gimme a break kid, ‘cause you don’t know anything
About screaming to the stars, when it’s just you and them and an empty hole you try
To fill with something more than a flicker.
When it’s just you and them and an empty hole and you’re trying to fill it up.
