"I am Happy to The Point of Fear" -Ralph Waldo Emmerson

"Red Rover, red Rover,
Send Haley on Over"
the words she never heard...

She spends her days
With books and papers,
never speaking a word.

"Red rover, red rover
Send Morgan on over"
The girl she wished she could be

She watches them laugh,
And she smiles to herself,
'Someday that will be me.'

"red Rover, red rover
Send Valeria on over,"
The girl with the pleasing words...

She sits and she wonders
She should be different,
If maybe her voice could be heard...

"Red rover, red rover
Send Lauren on over,"
The girl who always understands,

Maybe she should be
more considerate of others,
maybe then she would have a friend...

"red rover red rover...
Send Riley on over"
The boy she works so hard to please,

She strives to be near him,
Being away is so hard,
Yet he walks away with such ease...

Red rover red rover...
Please send her on over,
She's dying inside, torn apart...

She's tried and she's tried,
You know how she's cried,
As she puts back together her heart.
