  • Hey your glass is empty
    It's a hell of a long way home
    Why don't you let me take you
    It's no good to go alone
    I never would have opened up
    But you seemed so real to me
    After all the bullshit I've heard
    It's refreshing not to see
    I don't have to pretend
    She doesn't expect it from me

    So don't tell me I
    Haven't been good to you
    Don't tell me I
    Have never been there for you
    Just tell me why
    Nothing is good enough

    Hey little girl would you like some candy,
    Your momma said that it's ok,
    The door is open come on outside,
    No I can't come out today,
    It's not the wind that cracked your shoulder
    And threw you to the ground,
    Who's there that makes you so afraid
    You're shaken to the bone,
    You know
    I don't understand,
    You deserve so much more than this

    So don't tell me why
    He's never been good to you,
    Don't tell me why
    He's never been there for you,
    And I'll tell you that
    Why is simply not good enough,
    Oh, so just let me try
    And I will be good to you
    Just let me try
    And I will be there for you,
    I'll show you why
    You're so much more than good enough

    So don't tell me why
    He's never been good to you,
    Don't tell me why
    He's never been there for you,
    And I'll tell you that
    Why is simply not good enough,
    Oh, so just let me try
    And I will be good to you
    Just let me try
    And I will be there for you
    I'll show you why
    You're so much more than good enough
