Pretty, pretty girl
Hide behind your books,
And let us watch you escape into another world,
None of us will ever know.
Be quiet and stand away from the norm.
Ask “how” and “why”
When no one else cares.
Be quiet and stand away.
Because I know beneath your frizzled hair,
Lies miles of brilliant thoughts,
Meant to inspire the world.
Pretty, pretty girl,
Be quiet.
Pretty, pretty girl,
Just…
Be.

It was originally titled Laura, about my friend of the same name. It doesn't really have anyhing to do with her, but I wrote it for her, thinking about her.
