You're allowed

the boys that split your lip
and hurt your pride
they broke you
more than you know



all the secret things
that bump in the night
the wolves outside your door
you're allowed to feel afraid
you're allowed to feel alone
you're allowed to ask out loud




the boys that pulled your hair
and hurt your pride
they broke you more than you know
and that drowning dream
that comes in the night
the wolves outside your door



you're allowed to feel afraid
you're allowed to feel alone
you're allowed to ask out loud



your eyes burn with sleep and your ears stop hearing me
like when his body relaxes over you
there's nothing in the world, there's nothing that's for real




You're allowed

Nope, Jon Levine of the Philosopher Kings wrote it. They are one of my favorite bands. Thanks for asking, didn't even realize his name didn't publish correctly.
