lyrics

My princess
You're obsessed
The principal called
You left during recess
Visited her old class
Even changed into her dress
Sat down
Her hair in your hand
Getting drenched
Fist clenched
Thinking about that boy on the playground
One day she would face him
But now he's turned around
You saw his name on her desk
Got a little sadder
Saw the heart around it
Got a little madder
At him
The world
The new girl
Sweetheart we all have a clock
In different time zones
But it doesn't stop
It continues to tick
At the door they all stood
Don't take me out there you tried to say
But the pain was too thick

(Chorus)
Nothing new under the roof
The usual family fights
Broken plates and sharp spite
You've walked a mile in those shoes
That's why I'm on my knees
Begging you please
Leave ‘em at the door

My princess
You're hurting me
Words may not be stones
But when they hit
They stick
You don't mean what you say
Pain knows no other way
Let her go
She’s not sick
No more needles
She's free now
A bald eagle
I caught you messing up her bed
Claiming she slept there
But you say it's lacking the pajamas
Her dark hair
Nothing will satisfy you
Nothing can compensate
You yell in your sleep
With live and hate
Grind teeth in your dreams
Sweaty sheets
Burning mom's heart when you scream

(Chorus)
Nothing new under the roof
The usual family fights
Broken plates and sharp spite
You've walked a mile in those shoes
That's why I'm on my knees
Begging you please
Leave ‘em at the door

You don't talk to me
Only the mirror on the wall
Dead phone to your ear
Her personality on call
I've made appointments
You no longer have a choice
They said you spoke to them
But it was her voice
You're losing your mind
And my dear
That's the hardest thing to find


(Chorus)
Nothing new under the roof
The usual family fights
Broken plates and sharp spite
You've walked a mile in those shoes
That's why I'm on my knees
Begging you please
Leave ‘em at the door
