[VERSE ONE]
I saw her walking through the hallway
Head down staring at the ground
Tears are falling down
Ashes all surround
Dropped to her knees and whispered
A soft, short, loud goodbye
Ready for no more cryin
Tries to act like she's alright

[CHORUS ONE]
So I said girl what you cryin about?
Try to see the world before you go to the clouds
I know that it gets harder to breathe
But put your trust in me
I won't let things get too rowdy

[VERSE ONE]
Shifts away in hesitation
She looks straight at me in the eye
Confusion riles inside
She's got no guide to see the light
Tells me she'll go unnoticed
An outcast is all she is
They'll move on with their daily lives
Begs for courage to get off this ride

[CHORUS ONE]
So I said girl what you cryin about?
Try to see the world before you go to the clouds
I know that it gets harder to breathe
But put your trust in me
I won't let things get too rowdy

[BRIDGE ONE]
She sobs that she's got no one
Parents fighting, no chest lean on
Says all hope is gone far, away
She thinks that she's unwanted
A rainy day is all she is
Fills everyone with dismay

[CHORUS TWO]
So I said girl won't wipe off that pout
You don't know what this life is all about
Can't you see rainy days feed the seeds
People around should take heed
And you better believe me and what I say

[BRIDGE TWO]
You'll be the difference the world needs
The butterfly that shows people, the summer breeze

[CHORUS THREE]
The pain I see buried inside
I know, I've felt it before
But you still have a long way to go
So I said girl what you cryin about?
