her dad does time for robbing banks
her shit-head boyfriend is hooked on meth
and while her bestfriend's busy getting laid
her mom took the kids and left without her

now
i know you're trying to keep your head up
i know you're trying to kill the pain
but you gotta stop
there's better ways

claire
i'm praying for you, i'm praying for you
so please don't let me down
claire
could you get better? would you get better?
i can't put you in the ground

if you hear me now, if you understand
claire
i'm praying for you, i'm praying for you
so please don't let me down

she don't get in her veins
cause it makes her feel
she do this bullshit everyday
does she stop waking up?

you know she could've been anything
she could've literally had it all
and now she just can't stop
and now she just can't stop, so

claire
i'm praying for you, i'm praying for you
so please don't let me down
claire
could you get better? would you get better?
i can't put you in the ground

if you hear me now, if you understand
claire
i'm praying for you, i'm praying for you
so please don't let me down

claire
i'm praying for you, i'm praying for you
so please don't let me down
claire
could you get better? when you get better
we could take you out

if you hear me now, if you understand
claire
i'm praying for you, i'm praying for you
(whispering)
so please don't let me down

claire
i'm praying for you, i'm praying for you
so please don't let me down
claire
won't you get better? hope you get better
i can't put you in the ground
