I'm sixteen;who would listen?
To the things I'm about to say.
I'm sixteen;who would listen?
To the story I must convey.

I'm five;who would listen?
If I said I could see monsters.
I'm five;who would listen?
If I said I could never see the stars.

I'm seven;who would listen?
To a child deprived of a childhood.
I'm seven;who would listen?
To the wails often misunderstood.

I'm eleven;who would listen?
If I said darkness was my sanctuary.
I'm eleven;who would listen?
If I said the moonlight held my story.

I'm thirteen;who would listen?
When I can't get the words out.
I'm thirteen;who would listen?
When my life is only filled with doubt.

I'm fifteen;who would listen?
To the melancholy monotone of my despair.
I'm fifteen;who would listen?
To the thunderous footsteps on my stair.

I'm sixteen;did you listen?
Or did my tale make you depart?
I'm sixteen;did you listen?
To the final beat of my heart.
