I am just a girl.
Unaware and overdressed.
Spent too long looking in the mirror
You weren’t there I guess
But distance makes the heart grow harder
Give in, give up, get mad, get hurt
You’re the tragedy of my own choosing
Good girls don’t act like introverts
Walking proud on broken glass
The fine line between confidence and audacity
I’ll hold your hand
It’s safe because it’s temporary
My loyalty proved a fault
Sold into hatred, freed into fear
You brought the first though not the last
Isn’t sadness hard to hear?
When time left, the map unfolded
In the absence of courage, I ran
At the very least you gave me kindness
As a someday happiness of some man
I loved you
That’s easy when you’re so far
But said the rooster to the dog,
“You are what you are”
Blood split isn’t worth anything
Bruises healed never show
Smile, dear, the whole world’s watching
Better to be pretty than to know
