He walked into my room
Put his arms on either side
First I laughed then tried to say
Go away go away

Why can’t you sleep downstairs?
On the futon, or the couch
Tried to make it his idea
To leave to leave

I want a lock on my bedroom door
He held me down with his hands
Should I call out
Don’t want a scene

I want a lock on my bedroom door
He held me down with his hands
I always assumed
It wouldn’t happen to me so

He had his hands on my shoulders
He’s really really strong
6 foot 6, over my body
When he’s drunk
He gets angry

I want a lock on my bedroom door….

I fell off my scooter when I was 8
He made sure i was okay
He was my brother’s best friend
He noticed me

I want a lock on my bedroom door….
