Kick me when I’m down

And tell me I don’t matter

I want to feel I belong

That’s all I ever asked

Now really can you blame me

For leaving you right now

When it is you who send me out

You’ve done it all before

And you ask me to trust you now

When all the sounds of crying

Still haunt me in the night

And the blood about the floor

Still washes up on me

And you blame me for leaving

To somewhere more welcoming

And you blame me for crying

When I’ve known it all too much

And you blame me for feeling done

When it is you who leave me here

I’m outside

That’s all I’ll ever be

I’m outside

That’s what you make me.

Now look at me escaping.
