  • Summer's locked in her room
    Praying bruises will fade away
    With her headphones on
    Everything's A ok
    They don't know how she feels
    A beat up left out, a weirdo
    People hold you down
    Never let you go
    Every scar she has today
    from the ones she loved

    I wanna see you shine
    I wanna see you go for the win
    I wanna see you move
    I wanna see you love your life again for you

    Everyone played along
    Sublime cool kids turned her away
    She can't cry anymore
    Pulled her hoodie to hide her face
    They don't know how she feels
    A beat up left out, a weirdo
    Then they hold HER down
    Never let her go
    It's a monster that they made
    That no one could love

    I wanna see you shine
    I wanna see you go for the win
    I wanna see you move
    I wanna see you love your life again

    In her note she needed love
    And a place to hide away
    The world can't bring her down
    From the moment that she rose
    When she threw her pills away
    This world can't bring her down

    I wanna see you shine
