She

She knows right from wrong and she understands good from bad
She even knows the truth they keep telling her but she still denies the lies
But something deep within her won't let her move on, something within her is pulling her along, to the other side where love does not exist, where light does not shine through and hope is only a word
She takes it day by day wondering when it will all go away
She tells herself no one understands and no one ever will
She's in a battle with herself and she doesn't want to fight
She didn't ask for this to begin so when will it all just end
But something deep within her won't let her move on, something within her is pulling her along, to the other side where love does not exist, where light does not shine through and hope is only a word She cries under the blanket that's become too comfortable
She hides in the dark that's become too familiar It's been so long since a smile came across her face and even longer since she felt okay
She knows there's a way out and time is not on her side
But something deep within her won't let her move on, something within here is pulling her along, to the other side where love does not exist, where light does not shine through and hope is only a word She keeps telling herself just one more time, let me do things my way
She insists she'll surrender tomorrow
Tomorrow could be too late they say, but she says she's just not ready and to wait
Wait for what they ask, hasn't this gone on long enough, haven't you caused enough pain, cried enough tears, broken hearts and lived in fear?
She stares in silence with no emotion on her face
She slowly takes a step back and walks away
There she goes again, on her own selfish way
But something deep within her won't let her move on, something within her is pulling her along, to the other side where love does not exist, where light does not shine through and hope is only a word
