She's Falling Apart

Album: Cake And Pie (2002)
  • They pull up their chairs to the table
    She stares at the food on her plate
    At the toast and the butter
    Her father and mother, she pushes away

    And they rise in the morning
    And they sleep in the dark
    And even though nobody's looking
    She's falling apart

    She gets home from school too early
    And closes the door to her room
    There's nothing inside her
    She's weak and she's tired of feeling like this

    And they rise in the morning
    And they sleep in the dark
    And even though nobody's looking
    She's falling apart

    They call her for dinner, she makes up a reason
    She looks at her arms and she rolls down her sleeves
    And her mother is starting to see through her lies
    And last night her father had tears in his eyes

    And they rise in the morning
    And they sleep in the dark
    And even though nobody's looking
    She's falling apart

    And we rise in the morning
    And we sleep in the dark
    And even though nobody's looking
    She's falling apart, she's falling apart
