SHE


She was just six years old

When she first tried to die

And that was before

She new what to call it

Never

Will I

Tell you her name

But just so you know, it was me


She was just ten years old

When she jumped from that tree

She just got bruised up

And cut open her knee

Never

Will I

Tell you her name

But just so you know, it was me


Never

Will I

Tell you her name

But just so you know, it was me


She was just twelve years old

When she stepped in the road

She wanted to let

down her heavy load

Never

Will I

Tell you her name

But just so you know, it was me


There were many more days

that she can recall

holdin' a knife

in front of her heart

pourin' a cuppa

with draino mixed in

Stealin' OTC's

from Walmart

and perscription

from her parents' cabnets

but she didn't tell

that she wasn't well

She was embarresed

to tell her parents

She was suspicuose

of her counsiler

She was too scared

too jump off the ledge

but I thank her for that


She was fifteen years old

the day she wrote this song

feeling so locked up

so tired and wrong

Never

Will I

Tell you her name

But just so you know, it was me


Never

Will she

Tell you her name

But just so you know, she is me
