lyrics

When I heard what you were letting
Him do to you, I closed my eyes
Think back to you in high school
Would she ever let this happen to her?

Don't hide, I see your face in the light
Please come with me, you don't have to stay here
My feet are matching you step for step and my lungs breath for breath
Lie for lie, I know you

And when you fall asleep do you dream of me
Like I was at eighteen?
Awake and you will find the world outside your mind
Not what you wanted it to be

Teach me something new and wonderful
Teach me chemistry or history
Tell him I'm not a threat, standing here, watching you, underfed
Sunken eyes, and me saying my goodbyes

And when you fall asleep do you dream of me
Like I was at eighteen?
Awake and you will find the world outside your mind
Not what you wanted it to be

You used to laugh at me, I never knew why
Now I look back at those days with new eyes
It's not like I could have prevented this, could I? Could I?

And when you fall asleep do you dream of me
Like I was at eighteen?
Awake and you will find the world outside your mind
Not what you wanted it to be
