Dark Room, Hide Me

Verse: Dark room...don’t you go lighting up on me
‘Cause tonight I just want to be alone
Yes you...oh don’t you go opening up your door
I want to pretend like nobody’s home
Everybody’s screaming like it’s a freaking free-for-all
It’s like they forgot that I’m waiting for them to smile again
Sometimes I feel like it’s a free fall
And I’m the only one riding on the wind...

Chorus: Tell me what do I do!
I don’t want to be lost in this abyss till I die,
Tell me what do I do!
‘Cause I’m the only one walkin’ ‘round with tears in her eyes
Everybody else seems to know their direction
And I am devoid of their affection
Little girl lost in her own home
My heart’s nearly gone

Verse: Dark room...keep these little whimpers hidden
Keep them a secret, don’t let anyone hear
‘Cause Daddy says if I start that crying again
He’ll give me something to bring on those tears
And really I just can’t take it anymore
A smile hasn’t seen these people here for months
Destroyed by drugs and booze, destroyed by war
And it can’t be stopped once it has begun

Chorus: Tell me what do I do!
I don’t want to be lost in this abyss till I die,
Tell me what do I do!
‘Cause I’m the only one walkin’ ‘round with tears in her eyes
Everybody else seems to know their direction
And I am devoid of their affection
Little girl lost in her own home
My heart’s nearly gone

Bridge: The happiness that once dwelled here has ran
Go on, run as fast as you can
‘Cause once that first swig, was poured into those begging lips
There was no coming back
I’m getting the idea that I should run, too
No degree of hiding can save me from the cruel
Realities that are setting in, of a world doused in sin
But once I go, there’s no coming back...

Chorus: Tell me what do I do!
I don’t want to be lost in this abyss till I die,
Tell me what do I do!
‘Cause I’m the only one walkin’ ‘round with tears in her eyes
Everybody else seems to know their direction
And I am devoid of their affection
Little girl lost in her own home
My heart’s nearly gone
