That laughter
Those giggles
These whispers from behind
Itís enough to drive any girl out her mind.
You think itís funny when it doesnít happen to you
But maybe you should hear her cries, too!

The first time you saw her
In those hand me down clothes
She became your target
You forgot, sheís gentle as a rose.
Harsh words made her cry
At home, at night, alone in her room
She pretended not to see, not to hear,
But you kept hitting her, making it her fear.

Repeat chorus

Through elementary and middle
You tortured that girl
Freshman year began,
You didnít slow down
Did you think how much weaker she is now?
Her grades fell and her friends left
Spending her weekends alone crying in her room
Thinking of all the people who drove her to this.

Repeat chorus

On a dark, rainy, Friday night
You go out partying, forgetting the rain
Her parents left, leaving her alone
You made her so alone
She looks at herself
As the tub fills
Her parents come home to a bloody knife
Next to a bloody bath
With a dead daughter.


Her empty desk gets filled
And life moves on
Did you ever feel any hurt at all?
You and your harsh words killed that innocent girl
The crying and hurt she went through
Came from most of you
In such a harsh world
Did you offer help?
Open your eyes
And please realize
Words hurt.

That laughter
Those giggles
Those whispers from behind
It was enough to drive this girl out of her mind
You think its funny when it doesnít happen to you
But did you hear her sad cries too??

No, you didnít hear her sad cries too!

This song was very sad. I got the feeling of great loss from it - not a loss from you but a loss for the world, when this girl (in the song) was gone. It gives me the feeling that all this could have been avoided if someone (perhaps even the one that was hurting her) would have looked up and attempted to stop the pain.

I like that even after something drastic occurs, the students still have no idea just how much damage they've done. Everybody just keeps living their life like they were before. I've often thought about what would have happened if i had killed myself during some of the worst parts of my life, thinking i would teach the world a lesson. But we often learn nothing even from some of lifes' bigger events.
