lyrics

Barefoot on a concrete ledge
Raindrops falling on my hands
See the nightly city from fifteen stories
above the ground
It’s a long way down

You wanted me to be the best
But I’m failing every test
I am sorry father
I am not your daughter
I can’t make you proud
It’s a long way down

Nothing can erase the shame
There is only one escape
Throw my head back and breathe in
I have to be brave

Young girl in a white nightgown
Strangely twisted on the ground
She is smeared in red stains
Has a smile on her face
She’s found a way out
It’s a long way down
