She cries herself to sleep at night.
Knowing living this way just isn't right.
She knows she's not the girl she used to be-
But her soul cries out, wanting to be free.
Once upon a time she dreamed of a man coming to her rescue on a big white horse-
But that is just a fairy tale, of course.
All she ever wanted was an honorable man, someone strong-
Who would tell her his arms was where she belonged.
A man to kiss her, hug her, hold her tight-
Instead of making her feel lonely every night.
Her pillow, soaking wet with tears-
Only points out her heart's worst fears.
That man she dreamed of long ago-
Has since turned into someone she doesn't know.
The moon catches a tear as it shines through the glass-
Illuminating the hurts of the past.
She pulls the covers up over her heart-
Knowing that with her dreams she must part.
If only, if only to die from a broken heart-
Maybe then, in another life, she would get a brand new start.
Lying in bed with a stranger only makes you blue-
For all those dreams, that didn't come true.
