about

Raw mix of what I sent to Stoupe before he put the beat in. This feels even lonelier.

lyrics

A girl once lived in a basement
Stuck in her own entrapment
Living off scraps and presents
Scraping away at her patience

If she squinted just right
She could see some daylight
And what a delight it would be
To be outside
Just playing all day
And laughing away
Oh, what a delight it would be

A girl once lived in a basement
Self-imprisoned in darkness
Waiting for horse and carriage
To whisk her away from this sadness

If she wished really hard
And sang out real loud
Then some passerby’s bound to
Pass and hear the sound
But nobody cares
Cause no one’s out there
So she’ll sing a song till she’s dead

If she wished really hard
And sang out real loud
Then some passerby’s bound to
Pass and hear the sound
But nobody cares
Cause no one’s out there
So she’ll sing a song till she’s dead
