I'm trapped 
in myself 
trying to be the perfect daughter 
the perfect friend 
and I'm just waiting for it all to end 

i cook the dinner 
i clean the house
and stay quite as a mouse 

inside i scream and cry 
inside I'm planning on goodbye  

but that's never going to happen 
because i have "responsibility"

brothers wounds to tend
problems of my friends 
and that stupid house to clean 

Im fourteen 
i don't need this sh*t
or a father who likes to hit  

but this is where I'm stuck at in my life 
this is my greatest strife 

so I'll smile 
ask you to stay awhile

and die inside 
as my heart turns a different tide
