lyrics

Don't watch the television
But I hear it in the background
If I've made any decision
I dare not say it out loud
My bedroom's not a prison,
But the only place I can sing aloud

I look through the same window
Made of a lit up, plastic screen
I see the popularity contests
And everything in between
But give me the bad news
Or whatever I can have of it, please

I am safe in this corner
This corner of the world
The same little corner
That grew up a little girl

Success lies in other lands
Against the shining seas
And I'm not being shy
Or hiding from what a storybook told me
Bored of these sidewalks,
But I'm stuck in the concrete

I am safe in this corner
This corner of the world
The same little corner
That grew up a little girl

All the terrible things that I don't have to see
In this corner of the world
That's where I'll be

Everything could be so much worse
But it's not what you're experiencing
And I used to hear these things as if they were supposed to be happening
Now my thoughts have taken time
To wander to places I don't wanna see
All the places that I just don't -
I don't want to see, I don't want to see

I am safe in this corner
This corner of the world
The same little corner
That grew up a little girl

All the terrible things that I don't have to see
In this corner of the world
That's where I'll be
