Your Knight In Shining Armor

There she is radiating an unnatural sort of splendor
Something within tells me to fall back and surrender
She doesn’t know me or why I’m here
She’s beautiful, she’s stunning, and her face portrays fear

I’m here to save you, girl
I can hear you screaming from where I stand
Take my hand, girl
Run away with me, I’m here to help, I’m you’re friend
You have the right to be afraid
I’m not exactly the neighborhood charmer
But if you’ll let me, I could be your knight in shining armor

There she is with a bottle glued to her fingertips
Smeared lip gloss is tarnished across her lips
She doesn’t know me or why I’m here
She’s beautiful, she’s stunning, and her face portrays fear

I’m here to save you, girl
I can hear you screaming from where I stand
Take my hand, girl
Run away with me, I’m here to help, I’m you’re friend
You have the right to be afraid
I’m not exactly the neighborhood charmer
But if you’ll let me, I could be your knight in shining armor

There she is with hidden scars and regrets
She says she wishes she was never born, and that we never met
She says she wants to die
“If you die, I die too.”
And I held her close and I kissed her lips
She touched me with her fingertips
And I made an oath to always protect her
Forever, forever

I’m here to save you, girl
I can hear you screaming from where I stand
Take my hand, girl
Run away with me, I’m here to help, I’m you’re friend
You have the right to be afraid, girl
I’m not exactly the neighborhood charmer
But if you’ll let me, I could be your knight in shining armor
Take my hand, princess
We’ll make this ending a new beginning.
