She said she wants to end it all
When she's all alone in her room
She cries, the way she feels inside
Is too much for her

When all you've got is these four walls
It's not that hard to feel so small
Or even exist at all

How come no one heard her when she said

Maybe I'm better off dead
If I was, would it finally be enough
To shut out all those voices in my head?
Maybe I'm better off dead, better off dead
Did you hear a word, hear a word I said?
This is not where I belong
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Gone, gone
This is not where I belong
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

She doesn't know she's beautiful
Cause no one's ever told her so
And the demons that she hides
Are all she knows
Maybe she could fall in love
With someone in her life
That she could trust,
And tell her she's enough

How come no one heard her when she said

Maybe I'm better off dead
If I was, would it finally be enough
To shut out all those voices in my head?
Maybe I'm better off dead, better off dead
Did you hear a word, hear a word I said?
This is not where I belong
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
This is not where I belong
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

When all you've got is these four walls
It's not hard to feel so small
When all you've got is these four walls
It's not hard for you to feel so small

All she wanted was to be enough
All she wanted was to be enough
So what does it take?
Maybe it's not too late

Yeah no one heard her when she said

Maybe I'm better off dead
If I was, would it finally be enough
To shut out all those voices in my head?
Maybe I'm better off dead, better off dead
Did you hear a word, hear a word I said?
This is not where I belong
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Gone, gone
This is not where I belong
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Gone, gone
This is not where I belong
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
