Do you remember when I was twelve, and you were just 13
I used to wear your dresses and you always wore my jeans
helped me paint my face, cause that wasn't yer thing
and we had no say in what was happening

Our bodies were blank slates, naked and bare
'till someone said your ass looked big and that they'd always stare
and hair kept growing, where hair just shouldn't grow
I thought that that was normal, but inside I'd always know

but sometimes, when I close my eyes
I'd see what I world where kids weren't codified
and if I try to forget
maybe I just won't remember

that my body's in a war against me
and I'd like to say I'm winning, but we'll had to wait and see
