You can see it in the face of
Every girl
Who turns her back on
Everything
She ever knew
Hoping for some peace

But all she's got is a head full of sorrows
A book of misery she'll never lose
A fake smile and laugh, a door slam
And nothing.
Nothing can keep her happy these days

You always wonder at how
She was such a social kid
But now
She spends all her time alone in her room
With the stereo too loud

And if you ever manage to break into her world
For just a minute
And watch her close the book
And turn her back on
Everything
That she knows and
Everything
That she never wanted to be told and
Everything
That she wishes she never did
But she did them
And she can never get them back
