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.
