    • On the porch, she will sit,
      light another cigarette,
      and take a sip of anything that makes it right.
      She’s outside, trying to hide from the fight just inside,
      where her mom and her dad destroy each other
      and on the phone she will call
      every boy, yeah, one and all.
      They will touch her in all the right places.

      And in her room, she will slide
      down the bed and try to fly,
      and she will fall once again for the feeling
      and as he grabs her brown hair,
      she is faking
      that the feeling he gives her is real
      as the floor underneath the bed is
      she will finish what she starts with “i love you.”

      so from her head to her toes,
      nervous hands and runny nose,
      all of this just for one night of feeling
      and in her ears she will hear
      all the things that hide her fears
      of dying young and making plans for the future.

      and all the marks on her arms
      symbolize a fractured heart
      and all the boys that were smart
      left her alone

      so from the roof, she will fly
      15 feet down the side
      of the house where she once was happy

      yes it’s true, she’s aware
      that she is breaking
      and it’s true, she can’t do anything
      well in her blue underwear
      she is thinking how
      in jesus’ precious name 
      she got here

      well it’s sad but it’s true
      she is ending
      but for now, she will pray for some wings
      on a black cadillac she is landing hard
      yet her parents’ biggest worry is the car
