Give In

she's more than just a pretty face with basic taste
 
her insecurities, she hides them well
 
but they still leave a trace
 
I see her come home at night
 
as she removes her lace
 
she crawls into bed and the tears take their place
 
I wish I could tell her things are going to be okay
 
but she thinks she's too far gone to be saved
 
 
 
hey beautiful girl with the lonely heart
 
why do you do this to yourself
 
don't you know you're meant for something else
 
two more years then you'll be out of this town
 
why do you let these high school boys drag you down
 
inside there's a scared little girl just waiting to be let loose
 
she stopped believing in fairytales a long time ago
 
but you don't have me fooled
 
you just need someone to take your hand and be your prince
 
I'm reaching out Cinderella, let yourself give in
 
just let yourself give in
 
 
 
she's more than just a blowjob and get the fuck out
 
her intelligence, she hides it well
 
but I don't have a doubt
 
I've seen her read Shakespeare
 
and she gets lost in fiction
 
she lies down in bed and gives into her addiction
 
I wish she could show the world the girl she really is
 
but until then, darling, I'll keep waiting
 
 
 
hey beautiful girl with the lonely heart
 
why do you do this to yourself
 
don't you know you're meant for something else
 
two more years then you'll be out of this town
 
why do you let these high school boys drag you down
 
inside there's a scared little girl just waiting to be let loose
 
she stopped believing in fairytales a long time ago
 
but you don't have me fooled
 
you just need someone to take your hand and be your prince
 
I'm reaching out Cinderella, let yourself give in
 
just let yourself give in
 
 
 
I want to hold her in my arms and kiss her goodnight
 
I want to wake up to her hazel eyes knowing everything is alright
 
but she doesn't know I love her just the way she is
 
so princess if I reach out, promise you'll let yourself give in
 
 
 
hey beautiful girl with the lonely heart
 
why do you do this to yourself
 
don't you know you're meant for something else
 
two more years then you'll be out of this town
 
why do you let these high school boys drag you down
 
inside there's a scared little girl just waiting to be let loose
 
she stopped believing in fairytales a long time ago
 
but you don't have me fooled
 
you just need someone to take your hand and be your prince
 
I'm reaching out Cinderella, let yourself give in
 
just let yourself give in
