Stumbling past innocence, and
Wondering about that second try

Giving up on confidence, and
Living out her dreams about the sky

.
Keeping up appearances while
Leaping out the window in her mind

False pretenses, consequences
Looking for something that she cannot find

.
Missed out on what's left of love, yet
Wished-on all those precious lucky-stars

Maybe she could try harder, but
Then again maybe it went too far

.
Waiting for the day when she could
Leave this place if only she could fly

Shaking, not from the cold but from
Making wrong decisions in her life

.
Still there's hope for life again if
Hope means dying peacefully today

Healing wounds and righting wrongs, I'm
Leaving her with nothing left to say

.
To speak frail words would still be useless
Though I know she wants to anyway

Instead I'll just show her I love her
Hopefully by taking her away, away
