  • Wake up
    Curl my hair
    Look in the mirror
    Watch the truth disappear

    Go to school
    See him there
    Look in his eyes
    Watch my heart disappear

    Go to work
    No one cares
    Look down at the ground
    Watch my hope disappear

    Go to bed
    Do I dare
    Look up to the ceiling
    Watch my dreams disappear

    Wake up
    Curl my hair
    Look in the mirror
    Watch the life in my eyes disappear
