Tears are coming down like rain again
I cannot sleep I am hurting within
The memories are strong I see it all
The little girl inside is starting to call

Broken and beaten by her mother dear
She's hurting she's crying and full of fear
No one will listen and no one will care
She bruised and bleeding everywhere

You better not cry you keep that all in
Or you'll  get a beating all over  again
She's trying  so hard to hold them in side
but, no, they all fall out she runs to hide

I told you not to let me see you cry
you worthles brat you're gonna die
her mom starts beating her  over again
the pain the hurting deep  within

Why did she have to go through this all
why suffer so much when tears would fall
She was just a child she had no choice
Her mother denied her of her little voice
