So you showed me around your town
To hell again and back
I love the certain way you need
All the friends you depend on

I know it might seem odd
Because you're not the only one
I remember myself as a lonely child
So what was it? you've got me wrong
You've got me wrong

(Ground your sense of worth
To the spark of morning light
And all those searching eyes
Could scold your tender mind)

Remember what they say
There's no shortcut to a dream
It's all blood and sweat
And life is what you manage in between

But what you don't know
Is you're too young and eager to love
Seething, I see
You're about to get into
The ditch that you opened up

(Ground your sense of worth
To the spark of morning light
And all those searching eyes
Could scold your tender mind)

Sister's allay
And leave you behind
You want it so and I
I come the light of a lot of mood

Sister you know enough
But for now just let it go
Don't run, don't rush
Just flow

Through the give and take you've had to learn
How to cross the coals and not get burned
But you're really just a little girl
Playing in the park til the sun goes down

Sometime you want to rise
One did it's our desire
No doubt you think you braided your own hair
So you're all grown up

Should you want to cross the line
Which way do you want to fly
Pretend that love could help you find your way
But you got me wrong
Yeah you got me wrong
