They told her lies and gave her no hope for tomorrow
And all the fairy tales just fade away
The brightest day of all, the one that she’s been needing,
Turns to gray

A dirty secret living in her mind.
They’ll always tell you that you lit the fire
You’re feeding left behind

Always there to make you think that you’re no good.
There’s nothing wrong with what you’ve done.
They just want to lift you up and throw you down
Make you stop when all you want to do is run

Nobody understands the shame that you’ve been feeling
The dirty secret living in her heart
It must be hard to put the pieces back together,
Torn apart…
