When you feel like you're drowning,
Sinking into the deep,
Darling, don't you dare utter a scream.
Don't call out his name, her name, or any name at all.
Swim up, up, up.
But don't you dare count on anyone else.
They won't come running,
They won't risk their safety for yours.
Don't be naive,
There is no white horse or a brave, manly knight.
It's all fairytales to help you sleep tight.
They don't exist sweetie,
None of them do.
They don't really cherish you.
They don't know the value of a diamond,
Not unless it was on display to the world.
Remain chaste my sweet,
You're not just a stop on the way, my dear.
You're a destination
They aren't worth even one single tear.
