I know this girl
Who laughs
Then cries

I know this girl
Who will search
But never find

I know this girl
Who smiles like nothings
Wrong
But yet agrees to sing a
Song

I know this girl who will smile
Tomorrow
To keep the pain from
The people who follow

She walks with grace
Knowing that she has the world
To face

I know this girl who believes in youth
But is scared to face the
Truth

This girl knows she can do better
But yet can’t seem to believe in forever

She fights this battle that I’m aware of
And all this time I’m trying to figure out what
She’s afraid of
