lonely child
i don't want you to be alone 
an only child like me. 
an only child who trusts no one 
and finds it hard to breathe 
i know you're on your own 
no brothers or sisters in your home 
you were the only one 
but you don't have to be the lonely one
like i was raised to be 
like i was raised to be 
like i was raised to be 

you're my perfection, my clean slate 
my tabula rasa if you like 
oh, but birthdays seem so long ago 
some days are hangin by a thread 
you wouldn't notice you were meant 
to be an angel playin in the dirt 
in spite of all the hurt 

like i was raised to be 
like i was meant to be like i was made to be 
like i was meant to be like i was raised to be 
like i was meant to be 
like i was made to be like i was raised to be
