[Verse 1]
You never cared to hear the other side
So why would you care to keep this thing alive
You paint me into the memory of all your pain
But I will not be drawn into the past again

[Chorus]
'Cause all of this is all that I can take
And you could never understand the demons that I faced
So go ahead and bat your eyes and lie right to the world
For what everything you are
You're just a little girl

[Verse 2]
I never meant for you to feel this way
The Decembers were never meant to be our graves
It's not a question of who was wrong and what is right
But time cannot heal what you will never recognize

[Chorus]
'Cause all of this is all that I can take
And you could never understand the demons that I faced
So go ahead and bat your eyes lie right to the world
For what everything you are
You're just a little girl

[Bridge]
So go ahead and cry
So go ahead and believe that you were right
Keep away the dark to help you sleep tonight

[Background]
Go on and decide
Who is wrong, what is right
'Cause you know inside

[Chorus]
'Cause all of this is all that I can take
And you could never understand the demons that I faced
So go ahead and bat your eyes and lie right to the world
For what everything you are...

'Cause all of this is all that I can take
And you could never understand the demons that I faced
So go ahead and bat your eyes and lie right to the world
For what everything you are
You're just a little girl

    Its about a guy who loves a girl but he's had a rough life and she doesn't really understand that and he's sick of trying to explain, and no matter what, he's seen the darkness, but she's still innocent and light and 'a little girl', and yet she's trying to say other wise because deep down she knows he's right.

    I think this song is about a innocent girl who has seen dark times and wants to know how the world really is but the man singing this doesnt want to explain so she can stay innocent so insted she makes up what she thinks is wrong and right- she lies to the world.
