Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Girl In the Window"

Listen here for the story behind the song.

LYRICS

I was sitting in the window, trying to find the me lost inside, so sad I wanted to cry, felt a drop on the side of my cheek, wiped it away, came running down faster than rain. I didn’t know what to say, so I hid in my room for the rest of the day, and I cried in my pillow.

Sat on my bed, trying to forget all the things that you said. They came back every time that I shut my eyes. I couldn’t fall asleep because my dreams took over the world.

I should have known. I should have known that you were going to break my heart till the last piece shattered to the ground. I dream of you, our touch, our kiss, the way your lips touched mine, your hands felt on my side, the moment our hearts collide.

Open your arms, if you only showed me your heartless ways. I thought you loved me. Your voice it echoes, echoes inside my head. I wake up with worry about every moment. My life is just a fear. I miss you. I want to be with you, but you moved on to another girl.

Hoping for love, but now I found myself right here, writing this song, pouring out all my heart, hoping you’d hear it once and for all.

I should have known. I should have known that you were going to break my heart till the last piece shattered to the ground. I dream of you, our touch, our kiss, the way your lips touched mine, your hands felt on my side, the moment our hearts collide.

I found myself sitting in the window, stopping the tears. But I’m getting stronger, no longer so lonely.

I’d know I am lovely.
