Have you ever been so lonely,
No one there to hold?
Pull me in or disown me,
And then climb inside.
My arms are open wide.
Have a look inside. 

It is not that I am scared to learn,
Why I'm empty inside.
Hold my hand or show some concern,
If I live or die. 
My eyes are open wide.
Help me look inside.

I hear the water drip from the faucet.
It's sweetly falling in tune.
I'm gently closing the closet.
I fall to the floor,
And crawl to my room. 
The thought of ending it soon.
Just let me sleep in my room. 

Hear me cry! cry! cry!
I hear a knock at the front door. 
Don't come in!
I try to look at you
But I can't stop shaking.
Leave me alone. Just go away.
Mother I'm so scared. 

Empty bed and all of the sheets are gone, 
They're wrapped around me and you.
All is quiet but the drop of a gun.
I want to belong, to someone
But maybe life's not for everyone.
