you live in a house that's completely your own
from your door to your couch to your kitchen stove
and the house screams you at a cowering me
you leave so little room for another to be

i walk from place to place under a cloud of your rain
push myself away so i can comfort your pain
in a house that's too small, and a house that's too tight
someday i'll smash the roof growing up with all my might

and i love you, you smother me
i hate you, you cover me,
enough, you, you're all i see
i love you so discover me

you live in a world where you'll always have your way
i may be a shallow girl but i'll take the highway
you're a train charging on, if i was tied to the tracks
you'd plow right on through me without ever looking back

there are reasons we can't sleep, we're alike, you and i
constantly charging to reach the other side
but at least i'm out here, at least i'm on my own
at least i'm not your passenger or stuck inside your home
