  • When the morning was clear
    Blackened affairs
    And she could not breathe
    Cause she felt scared
    Couldn't help but stare
    Out of the window
    Even though she wouldn't go outside

    She wouldn't answer the door
    Curtains were drawn
    And the house was cold
    Children were old
    And they did not care
    That's what she thought
    And they tried to help her
    But she wouldn't answer the door

    And the love were hoping for is dying
    Just like this city, that we're all in

    As time went on
    Felt she belonged
    In a trapped domain
    Drove her insane
    And the men she loved
    Over the years
    They would only use her
    They would only use her

    Cause the love were hoping for is dying
    Just like this city, that we're all in

    When the morning was clear
    Blackened affairs
    And she could not breathe
    Because she felt scared
    Couldn't help but stare
    Out of the window
    Even though she never went outside

    And the love were hoping for is dying
    Just like this city, that we're all in
    And the love were hoping for is dying
    Just like this city, that we're all in Writer/s: Jake Edwin Kennedy
