Her dress don't hide her age
Not like Mama said it would
And her smile fades away
Just like Daddy said it could

Pyramid of tears
I see you cry

No, things don't come so easy
Not when you turn twenty-five
And to blow out the candles
Takes a little concentration
I can't look inside her eyes
I can't kiss her perfect lips
I can't whisper in her ears
And take her far away from this


I can't hold her tight enough
Not to steal away the pain
I can't look into her eyes
And tell her everything's ok
No, she's no tired

She's just older
And she's lost the will to fly
I can't whisper in her ears
And tell her everything will be ok
