How could you do this to me?
Destroy my dreams
And replace them with yours
As if you have that right?
Undermine her, undermine that little girl
That poor litte girl.
Avert your eyes from that sad, sad girl.
"I cannot change you"
She will say to you
Tears in her eyes
"But you can"
She'll close her eyes, take a deep breath
She'll look you square in the eyes
Her full height.
She'll tell you
She'll tell you, my friend.
She will tell you.
Tell you what your blind to.
She will be brave.

And you will continue cowering.
