In silence she cries But she won't let them see Hurt and alone She wants to be free Free of the loneliness Free of the pain Because the other kids don’t like her They say she's too plain. Inside she is hurting She's falling apart Praying for a knight To come steal her heart. At lunch and in class She sits all alone She looks all around her While the teacher just drones. But she won't let on Just how bad she feels Sometimes she acts happy And pretends that its real. Although she's unhappy The world smiles on So she goes on pretending She's someone she's not. She holds back her sadness But when the tears start to well She runs to the bathroom So no one can tell. When she finally gets home It's like entering hell Her parents are fighting They scream and they yell. She turns up her music And climbs into bed The music’s a cloud Surrounding her head. Her blanket’s her shelter Her one place to hide She feels a bit better When she climes inside. When she drifts off to sleep She finally dreams Here in her mind She can finally be free. Free of the rain cloud over her head Free of the nasty words her father had said Here in her mind She can finally be free Free of the hurt Free of the pain Free of the sadness That hits her like rain.
