I Want a Lock

Rockport, Maine

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

Lyrics

He stumbled into my bedroom
He put his arms on either side
At first I laughed, then tried to say
Go away go away go away go away

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

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

He had his hands on my shoulders
And he’s really really strong
I was pinned and thinking how
When he’s drunk he gets so angry

I want a lock on my bedroom door….

Then I took control
And I made him leave
But I couldn’t sleep
And I still haven’t told him

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….
