One Missed Call

July 26, 2008
10 PM and I'm sitting home
When will you call?
Nothing I've done this year but you
matters at all
Thirteen goes by, leaving me hung
on your last word

Two more hours till I'm fourteen, yet I feel small
'Cause I'm stuck staring blankly
at my bedroom wall
If you loved me
You would not leave me to die here

How could you seduce me?
You knew I was helpless
Still you took advantage
and gave me my first kiss

When I hit rock bottom
you opened your door
I thought I was safe
till I fell through the floor

12 PM and I stubbornly climb into bed
You're a nightmare, you'll fade
As I lay down my head
Someday I'll look back
Thirteen's a year to remember
