Badflower – Tethered Lyrics

Badflower Tethered Lyrics, Tethered Lyrics by Badflower

She’s younger than she looks
But she’s old enough to know
The nature of this world
And so the story goes

She’s dressed up like her friends
But she’s prettier than them
The whole room turns to look
Like something from a book

Then speech becomes a slur
She’s talking to some creep
Uncomfortable as hell
But too polite to leave

Then lines begin to blur
There’s something in her drink
She stumbles to his car
And no one says a thing

Oh, my love, you’re so young

Some might say she’s able to get back her normal life
When you love someone unwillingly
You leave yourself behind
You’re hiding in the bathroom
And you pray for better times
Say you’re gonna leave him there
And find a better life

Down the rabbit hole
She wakes up in his bed
Confused about her heart
And bruised between the legs

But she’s too afraid to leave
Or bite the hand that hits
She tells herself it’s love
Then plays along with it

Oh, my friend, you’re still young

Some might say she’s able to get back her normal life
When you love someone unwillingly
You leave yourself behind
You’re hiding in the bathroom
And you pray for better times
Say you’re gonna leave him there
And find a better life

Abused at seventeen
Some unrelenting creep
The father of her son

Some might say she’s able to get back her normal life
When you love someone unwillingly
You leave yourself behind
You’re hiding in the bathroom
And you pray for better times
Say you’re gonna leave him there
And find a better life

Find a better life
Find a better life
