The Girl Inside



The girl inside the woman trying to be free.
The girl inside who never got the chance to be.
The girl inside who never experienced love in her life.
The girl inside who tries to hide from the world,
Or could it be that the woman tries to hide the girl.
The girl inside the woman who hides behind her tears.
The girl inside the woman who's not brave enough to face her fears.
The girl inside the woman, who will cry for her.
The girl inside the woman she died inside of her.
