lyrics

I hate the smell of hospitals let's change these dirty sheets
I'll drown myself in alcohol and choke my lungs with weed
I lost the will to live the day my mother died
my father ran away now I have nowhere to hide
and it's ripped my chest open for all the world to see
they say time will heal it soon but all it's done is open wounds

little sister
I'll sing you a lullaby
don't lose hope when all is hopeless
wipe your eyes to see the sunrise over the clouds

I hate the way they talk to me I've lost my fucking nerve
I swear I've been real good but you never get what you deserve
and all this talk of buying headstones is really messing with my head
I lay awake at night listening to the ghosts beside my bed
I wish that I could talk to you I wish you'd understand
I hold my life in pieces it is crumbling from my hands
and I read the notes you left to me from before I was born
and I clutch my tear stained pillowcase I'm broken I am worn

little sister
I'll sing you a lullaby
don't lose hope when all is hopeless
wipe your eyes to see the sunrise
