lyrics

On the government floor by the old airport
I was in my room. I was four years old.
I was only four years old.

Pushing up her glasses to wipe her eyes
Mom was in the kitchen with both hands tied.
We were barely getting by.

I just wanna sleep, but I can't close my eyes.
I'm awake when it's dark. I'm asleep when it's light.

Trying on your shoes, but they're just not right.
I couldn't be the same even if I tried.
I don't even wanna try.

She's pulling back her hair in the bathroom mirror.
She tries to keep her cool 'til the coast is clear.
This has been a terrible year.

I just wanna sleep, but I can't close my eyes.
I'm awake when it's dark. I'm asleep when it's light.
