I look to you as the example
of what not to do
of what never to do
of what I can not let happen to me
(or the penalty is death by firing squad)

Straight to the heart, I take your mistakes.
Straight to the heart. You didn't see it,
but now its too late.

Thanks for not loving me enough to lie.
I needed a strong Mother, to lay with me
while I cried.

Goodbye lullabies and dream of Daddy coming home.

Childhood is over, done with, gone.

Now its time to catch the runaway train.
I've got my ticket and now I'm going
to the "real world"

I hope it was worth all this pain.
