The Girl Who Sits in Front of Me

There's a girl a seat in front of me who's the most popular in school

She struts around in high heels, making herself look cool

Her laugh is like an angel and she smiles all the time

No-one could have known she was pretending she was fine

There's a girl a seat in front of me who's the most popular out of her friends

She walks around the school keeping up with the current trend

Her laugh is like an angel and she smiles quite a lot

But she remembers her past because everyone else forgot

There's a girl a seat in front of me who's the most popular this room

She strolls around the corridors with her expensive perfume

Her laugh is like an angel and she smiles a few times a week

But her invisible tears roll silently down her innocent cheek

There's in a girl a seat in front of me who's not so popular anymore

She crawls across the classrooms fighting her inner war

Her laugh is like an angel and she hardly ever smiles

Because no-one has noticed what she's done with her knives

There's a girl a seat in front of me who just sits there wasting space

She slouches her back in lesson with an empty look on her face

Her laugh is like an angel but her smile has faded away

She wears long sleeves in summer as she bleeds every day

There's an empty seat in front of me as the girl has left the world

She left a note to her mother saying her voice was left unheard

She left a note to our class saying we shouldn't take the blame

But she said the silent girl who sits behind her understood her pain.
