The girl that sits and waits

There’s a girl that sits and waits

For someone there to

Change the fates


She looks around and upside down

But all she sees

Is this small town


No one sees her hidden pain

The kind that lasts

Throughout the rain


Her scars don’t show on either hand

She covers them

With a dark red band


She tries to hide what’s killing her,

The pain and scars

She can’t conquer


She’s wants so bad to see the light

But something’s got her

Dazed with fright


The hurt that lies within her soul

Has changed her heart

And left a hole


The days they end in misery

The nights just

Wake her angrily


She can’t break free

Can’t dare to be

Who she wants to be


Finally someone sees

And tells her friends

And family


She tried her best to fit in

And then one day

He walked in


Changed her life from there on out

And now there’s not

A single doubt


Fighting hard to stay alive

With him she knows

She can survive


In just a few more years time

She’ll grow up

And she’ll be fine


No longer does she sit and wait, the girl

Knows that

She’s his whole world.
