This is her voice still echoing, replaying in your mind
This is that conversation tone
That touching tongue, this sound reminds
You see her now, eyes back
As raising chin lifts to greet sky
As if that girl knew everything,
As if she'd answer "Why?"

But between her steps, the music fell, she woke tangled in sheets
Her skin wrinkled, her palms aware of the crying in the streets

Madonna's horrible secret, she's in just as much pain
Mamihlapinatapai, truth is no one leaves unscathed

Remind me why we're here when all's fallen apart
Remind me what I shouldn't fear
When all I feel's a broken heart?
Do you believe that you're alone in this?
You really think the other's ok?
He's wasted, scraping ocean floor
She'd drowning, too, miles away

Boy doesn't know she's scared and cold
She's tasting rum tonight
Dark as nightmare, thick as regret,
This burning blood her body fights
His t-shirt shred in shock, and trophies smashed on brick
Those letters that each never sent
Could have saved all of this

But he held her high on pedestal and locked his mouth in fear
And she hung on a broken heart, suspended in a tear

Madonna's horrible secret, she's in just as much pain
Mamihlapinatapai, truth is no one leaves unscathed

Remind me why we're here when all's fallen apart
Remind me what I shouldn't fear when all I feel's a broken heart
Do you believe that you're alone in this?
You really think the other's ok?
He's wasted, scraping ocean floor
She's drowning, too, miles away

He held her up too high
She couldn't read his mind
Complex, he let her slip away
So sad, she wished that she could have stayed

Remind me why we're here when all's fallen apart
Remind me what I shouldn't fear when all I feel's a broken heart
Do you believe that you're alone in this?
You really think the other's ok?
He's wasted, scraping ocean floor
She's drowning, too, miles away
