There was a boy who broke her heart
And she went running right to the bridge
To jump from it

This is the story of a girl like me
But I am nothing like that
I wouldn’t jump I like to live

She was the kind of girl that I admire
For all of the feelings that she feels
She is running from it
And I am still here

He was the kind of boy that you don’t want to visit
When you are with your family
I don’t know if he wanted something from her
But I know that he wanted something from me

I cannot stand between them
I wanna be the one who speaks on my own
I am running from it
But I am still here

This is a body I have borrowed from someone else
You can do whatever you want with it
These are the words I memorized from something I read
I have stolen all the noble things I said

And in the middle of the night when you are sleeping
I will slip into your skin

We are running from it
Why are we still here?
