Lyrics:

Hypnotize
2008 Alicia Champion

Verse 1:

I played a grown-up since I was nine
I took your burden, made it mine
Through your tears you couldn't see
I was drowning just like you
But I had no clue what to do

Verse 2:

It don't seem fair we're here today
With Daddy still an ocean away
Your pain healed, my skin sought steel
Sixteen years of tears and shame
Has brought me here to say

CHORUS:

Mama play hypnotize with me
Let's forget it ever happened
I wanna' feel the child I never got to be
Can we pretend we're still best friends
All I want is to remember
The innocence I knew before the thunder

Verse 3:

I dug a grave a childhood deep
With secrets under lock and key
Straws and saws sewed shut my jaws
And this mutilation leaves its stains
So let's reset our brains

CHORUS:

Mama play hypnotize with me
Let's forget it ever happened
I wanna' feel the child I never got to be
Can we pretend we're still best friends
All I want is to remember
The innocence I knew before the thunder

Bridge:

I know you
Couldn't do
Anything more than your best
I want to
Along with you
Put these demons to rest

CHORUS:

Mama play hypnotize with me
Let's forget it ever happened
I wanna' feel the child I never got to be
Can we pretend we're still best friends
All I want is to remember
The innocence I knew before the thunder

Can we pretend we're still best friends
All I want is to remember
The innocence I knew before the thunder
The innocence I knew before the thunder
The innocence I knew before the thunder
