I'm wishing the bath water clean
She hides in the back and is unseen
I take off the mask that surrounds me
Look me in the face, what do you see?
I feel like a boy of age thirteen
My body grows up, but my mind stays the same
Look em in the face, what do you see?
How do you tell an angel
That you don't believe in God
Why do I feel like such a stranger?
I look around and all my friends are gone

Would you be me?
Cause I would be you
You'd be happy if you wanted to
Would you trade me?
Cause I would trade you
You'd be happy if you wanted to

How do you tell your father
That you want him to notice you
Why does it seem like such a bother?
When Mom says â??He'd be better off deadâ??
But I want to see you
I still want to see you
Would you call me?
It's not hard to
I'm the first one, you gave birth to
Would you write me
On my birthday?
Graduation was yesterday
How do you hold the special victim?
When they push you away
When they've been
Raped on the inside
Torn on the outside
Feel dirt and ugly
From the strain that they try to hide
Touched in private places
Embarrassed faces
Too scared to ask for helpâ?¦why?

Would you be me?
Cause I would be you
You'd be happy if you wanted to
Would you trade me?
Cause I would trade you
You'd be happy if you wanted to

I'm wishing the bath water clean
She hides in the back and is unseen
I take off the mask that surrounds me
Look me in the face, what do you see?
