"Hear You"
(Katie Crutchfield)

I don't want to dry your tears
You're in the shadows, you're always near
Oh, you're crystal clear

[Chorus 1:]
You give up half your life
Talking trash, up all night
Stake out the coolest girl
She smiles at you, weighs on the world
I could have lied to you
Spineless, shrinking, tried and true
You muffle a paradigm
Yeah you'll have your truth, I'll have mine

I don't want to hear you out
I lay on the floor, you stomp around
Oh, and you fall down

[Chorus 2:]
I stand up on that stage
You sink your teeth, build your own cage
Wait for the coolest girl
You break her down, make her hear you out
I could have fought with you
Forever and never break through
You play your hand cut and dry
Yeah you'll have your side, I'll have mine
