lyrics

When she was only nine years old
Her heart was torn in two
By a man she knew the day that she was born.
And trust it heals slowly
And sometimes not at all.
'Cause you can't trust it when all in brings is harm.

So I ask her, "What's the matter?"
"Life just hurts a bit", she says.
And she kisses with a melancholy smile.

Some say we're only born to die
And there's only hell between
And it seems sometimes that's all that she believes.
I feel the sadness in her heart
And I try to ease her pain
But I see the soul behind her eyes just scream.

So I ask her, "What's the matter?"
"Life just hurts a bit", she says.
And she kisses with a melancholy smile.

When we've all lost hope and nothing's left
Can we look to those we trust?
Can they reach down and pull us from the mud?
When your whole life seems empty
And your soul feels like it's gone
Can you look to them and know that you'll find
Love?

So I ask her, "What's the matter?"
"Life just hurts a bit", she says.
And she kisses with a melancholy smile.

Melancholy smile.

What is trust anyway?

Do you trust?

Can you trust?

When she was only nine years old
Her heart was torn in two
By a man she knew the day that she was born.
And trust it heals slowly
And sometimes not at all.
'Cause you can't trust it when all in brings is harm.

So I
Ask her,
"What's the matter?"
"Life just hurts a bit", she says.
"Life just hurts a bit", she says.
And she kisses with a melancholy smile.
