Nessa Barrett – keep me afraid Lyrics

keep me afraid Lyrics – Nessa Barrett

I’m in the corner of your cage
Mascara running down my face
The door is open, but I’ll stay
You think you can keep me, keep me afraid

You’re twisting screws inside my head
I won’t just lie down and play dead
Take a good look at my face
You think you can keep me

Scared to fall asleep at night
When you’re by my side
I don’t know why, it doesn’t feel right
Hide behind your poker face
You do it every day
I know you lie, so I fake a smile

‘Cause in the end
I know you’ll get everything you gave

I’m in the corner of your cage
Mascara running down my face
The door is open, but I’ll stay
You think you can keep me, keep me afraid

You’re twisting screws inside my head
I won’t just lie down and play dead
Take a good look at my face
You think you can keep me
But I’m not afraid

Better hope and plead and pray
I keep your secret safe
You better run ’cause I got the gun
I don’t need receipts to show
The things that we both know
‘Cause I got the scars to prove who you are

‘Cause in the end
I know you’ll get everything you gave

I’m in the corner of your cage
Mascara running down my face
The door is open, but I’ll stay
You think you can keep me, keep me afraid

You’re twisting screws inside my head
I won’t just lie down and play dead
Take a good look at my face
You think you can keep me
But I’m not afraid
