Amanda Shires – The Problem Lyrics

The Problem Lyrics By Amanda Shires

Remember Katie White
She jumped the fence that night
She ran away in tears
Your sister drank her beer

We were just eighteen
The older girls could be so mean
I was talking just to talk
You were still in shock

And all I could think to say
Was everything’s gonna be okay
It’s gonna be alright
I’m on your side
I’m on your side

What do you want to do?
I’m scared to even say the truth
This has been the hardest year
Is it even legal here?

I’m trying not to think of names
Will you look at me the same?
Do you need the reasons why?
Is a chrysalis a butterfly?

And all I could think to say
Was everything’s gonna be okay
It’s gonna be alright
I’m on your side
I’m on your side

And no one has to know
The scars won’t even show
At least that’s what I’ve heard
No bigger than a baby bird
No bigger thana baby bird

Do you think God still sees me?
Coming out of this twilight sleep
I’m not sure who I am
Staring into my empty hands

And all I could think to say
Was everything’s gonna be okay
It’s gonna be alright
I’m on your side
I’m on your side
