Say the right word and she'll start to cry.
Excuse herself from the table, trash the takeout container later.
Walls repaired with make up and gum only hold for so long.
Oh, but she is strong.
Life of the party, she'll try anything once
Crack a joke when the silence comes on.
And when the bar lights up and its time to go,
She'll find the after party just so she doesn't go home.
Creep in late, close the door.
As the room spins to sleep, trace her arms for the scars
And it's now she feels she can never belong
Oh, but she is strong. "
