- LyricsHow good or bad
Happy or sad
Does it have to get?
Don't cry for help
- LyricsOne foot onto the ice
I hold my breath
And try to believe
Can I look at you with different eyes?
Like the girl that I was, when I was 17
- Lyrics'Cause I feel safe when you're near me
And I can hold you completely
Although you constantly hurt me
And we fight
And we cry
- LyricsOK so I call about a thousand times
I wait outside and I join the line
With a million girls that are just like me, ooh
I got your name saved on my screen
It says how much that you love me
