You're beautiful
With the shiniest diamonds in your ears
You can't hear your mother she's crying in the other room
She knows it won't be okay
Farther from her daughter with the coming of the days

So you pick up your books, that you never read
Run off to school like a good drama queen
Do you care where you're going, or know where you've been?
Barely a woman, you're 18 years in

Our faith is placed in second chances
As the angel and her demons dance it's

Like you're 18 years in with no way out
And you're the star of the story you don't care about
Just a little girl in a bigger world turning upside-down
Well, don't you throw it all away
When no one's here to pull you out
Gonna pull you out

You're beautiful
With your brand new clothes
Like armor from your head, from your head to your toes
You keep it all inside so that nobody knows
Your heart's on fire, people blind to the glow

And all these boys are thirsty for your outsides
You never care to ever let the right ones in
They're taking from you something that is sacred
I watched a car crash but I just can't take this

Our faith is placed in second chances
As the angel and her demons dance it's

Like you're 18 years in with no way out
And you're the star of the story you don't care about
Just a little girl in a bigger world turning upside-down
Well, don't you throw it all away
When no one's here to pull you out

And when you're safe and sound inside your bed
I know you dream of things bigger than the things that you let live
When you're safe and sound inside your bed
I know you dream of things I, I know you dream 18 years in

Like you're 18 years in with no way out
And you're the star of the story you don't care about
Just a little girl in a bigger world turning upside-down
Don't you throw it all away
When no one's here to pull you out
