Seven Days

I'm alone

And terrified

One phone call

And I'm on my side

Could you not let me

Have one day of innocence

---

I have seven days to learn the truth

Seven days left of my youth

---

I am scared

I can't speak

For the fear

I let my secret leak

Yet I cannot hide here

With my judge's eyes so near

---

For now I hide behind the lies

Seven days to face their eyes

Seven days to learn my mistake

Why does fate treat me this way?

---

Disappointment

And betrayal

Written on her walls

In my dreams

If the world turns upside down

The future we've been building will crumble on my ground

---

For now I hide behind the lies

Seven days to face their eyes

Seven days to learn my mistake

Why does fate treat me this way?

---

I am weak, must learn the truth

Have a week, left of my youth

Seven days to learn my mistake

Why does fate treat me this way?

The End
