  Who Will Save The Children

LYRICS

WHO WILL SAVE THE CHILDREN

Who will save the children, who will hear their cries
Who will save the children, who will stop the lies
Who will save the children, who will make them whole
Who will save the children, who will free their souls

Children are being abused everyday
Then tossed aside to find their own way
Their spirits have been crushed
And their voices have been hushed

Silenced by the horror and the shame
Carrying inside the burden of blame
Feeling betrayed by those they trust
Scarred forever by someone’s lust

Who will save the children, who will hear their cries
Who will save the children, who will stop the lies
Who will save the children, who will make them whole
Who will save the children, who will free their souls

Love the child that trembles with fright
And heal the heart that has been broken
Kiss the brow that’s saddened by pain
Let him know the truth can be spoken

Who will save the children, who will hear their cries
Who will save the children, who will stop the lies
Who will save the children, who will make them whole
Who will save the children, who will free their souls

So open up your eyes before it’s too late
See the evil lurking at your gate
For when the innocence is lost, what will remain
Only the pain – only the pain

Who will save the children, who will hear their cries
Who will save the children, who will stop the lies
Who will save the children, who will make them whole
Who will save the children, who will free their souls

Who will save the children, will you?


THREE CHILDREN

Three children in a row, who don’t know where to go
They wish upon a star, for dreams to take them far

Away from all the harm, they long for someone’s arm
To shield them from the night, to lead them toward the light

So young to be alone, one wish is for a home
Where love is everywhere, to share without a care

Three children in a row, who don’t know where to go
They wish upon a star, for dreams to take them far

They cling to one another, one wish is for a mother
To kiss their many tears, to laugh away their fears

Three children in a row, who don’t know where to go
They wish upon a star, for dreams to take them far

Someone they can honor, one wish is for a father
To be so brave and strong, to right the many wrongs

Three children in a row, who don’t know where to go
They wish upon a star, for dreams to take them far

Away from all the harm, they long for someone’s arm
To shield them from the night, to lead them toward the light

Three children in a row, they don’t know where to go


BROTHERS

Brothers can be good, brothers can be bad
Brothers can make you very sad
Brothers sneak into your room at night
Brothers are full of terror and fright
Where is the brother I used to know
Where is the boy who loved me so

Stay away from brothers, don’t listen to their lie
They’ll hurt you when you start to cry
They say they love you, oh yes this is true
And then watch out for what they do

Brothers put pillows across your face
And what they do next is such a disgrace
They steal your innocence away
And tell you that it’s all in play

Brothers can be good, brothers can be bad
Brothers can make you very sad
Brothers sneak into your room at night
Brothers are full of terror and fright
Where is the brother I used to know
Where is the boy who loved me so

Damn brothers, with their sick, twisted minds
Why are they no longer loving and kind
Why are brothers so vicious and mean
Why do they change when they reach thirteen

So, little sister, stay away from your brother
Stay away, don’t listen to another
Don’t believe him when he tells you this is fine
He’ll break your heart like he broke mine

Brothers can be good, brothers can be bad
Brothers can make you very sad
Brothers sneak into your room at night
Brothers are full of terror and fright
Where is the brother I used to know
Where is the boy who loved me so

Brothers can be good, brothers can be bad


MOTHERS ARE THE LAST TO KNOW

She sits all alone in the darkness
She can’t believe what she’s just heard
How could her own flesh and blood tell such lies
The mother bows her head and cries

She had been a good mother
She did the best that she could
What more can anyone ask
Raising children is a thankless task
A thankless task

Mothers are the last to know
Only seeing what they want to see
Running from the shameful truth
While trying to hold on to the family
Mothers are the last to know
Shutting out the evil that surrounds
Hiding in their sheltered beds
When all the world is falling down

She pretends the pain isn’t there
She ignores the pleas for help
She only wants to remember the best
And put the past to rest

Mothers are the last to know
Only seeing what they want to see
Running from the shameful truth
While trying to hold on to the family
Mothers are the last to know
Shutting out the evil that surrounds
Hiding in their sheltered beds
When all the world is falling down

Who can be trusted when one is so small
Nowhere to run when your back is against the wall
Who would believe such horror could be true
Not the mothers, they never do

Mothers are the last to know
Only seeing what they want to see
Running from the shameful truth
While trying to hold on to the family
Mothers are the last to know
Shutting out the evil that surrounds
Hiding in their sheltered beds
When all the world is falling down


CANDY DREAMS

Candy dreams don’t come true
But you can always count on the nightmares to
They haunt your mind, they won’t be left behind
Try as you might, you always lose the fight
You try to stay awake, but sleep overtakes
Candy dreams don’t come true
But you can always count on the nightmares to

Blood-soaked walls, running through the halls
Screams in the night
Have to get away from the lady in white
Once you shut your eyes, there’s nowhere to hide
The nightmares begin, you greet them with a grin

Candy dreams don’t come true
But you can always count on the nightmares to
They haunt your mind, they won’t be left behind
Try as you might, you always lose the fight
You try to stay awake, but sleep overtakes
Candy dreams don’t come true
But you can always count on the nightmares to

Demons come in pairs, eyes fixed in blank stares
Hands at your throat
Squeezing ‘til you wake up screaming and soaked
You try to find the door, but wind up on the floor
A figure sad and weary says “Welcome to your nightmare”

Candy dreams don’t come true
But you can always count on the nightmares to
They haunt your mind, they won’t be left behind
Try as you might, you always lose the fight
You try to stay awake, but sleep overtakes
Candy dreams don’t come true
But you can always count on the nightmares to


WILL I SEE A RAINBOW

I’ve been so frightened and alone
Always searching for a home
A place to lay my weary head
Hanging on by just a thread
I tried to find sweet happiness
But always settled for much less

Will I see a rainbow, will the sky turn blue
Will the clouds roll away, to let the sun shine through
Will I know the rainbows when they come my way
If they’re really rainbows, are they here to stay

I was lost for awhile, but I found my way back
The hurting’s almost over, I’m on the right track
No more picking over old bones that belong to the past
Now I can see the sunlight, I’m free at last

Will I see a rainbow, will the sky turn blue
Will the clouds roll away, to let the sun shine through
Will I know the rainbows when they come my way
If they’re really rainbows, are they here to stay

MEMORIES

Can memories be forgotten
Like forgetting a set of keys
Can memories be so frightening
They can bring you to your knees
Is life so cruel, it helps you to forget
Then floods you with the past when your life is set
When you feel safe, memories rush right back
When they know you are strong they attack

Memories of the past haunt me through the day
Memories of the past just won’t go away
Memories that fill my sleep, memories that make me weep
Memories of the pain, memories

They sneak up on you when you least expect it
Taking on a life of their own
Churning out some hidden horror
That you’d rather have left unknown
Who’s to say what’s wrong or what is right
Who can say what should be revealed
Memories can be so unkind
Never letting old wounds heal

Memories of the past haunt me through the day
Memories of the past just won’t go away
Memories that fill my sleep, memories that make me weep
Memories of the pain, memories

How I wish that I were only dreaming
How I wish this nightmare wasn’t true
What I wouldn’t give to be whole again
What I wouldn’t give to start anew

Memories of the past haunt me through the day
Memories of the past just won’t go away
Memories that fill my sleep, memories that make me weep
Memories of the pain, memories
 

COME OUT INNER CHILD AND PLAY

Come out, come out, little child and play
The world is ready, you can have your say
Come out, come out, little child and play
The world is ready for you

No, no, no I’m afraid go away
I am safe here, I’ll wait for another day
No, no, no I’m afraid go away
I am safe here, I’ll wait for another day

Come out, come out, little child and play
The world is ready, you can have your say
The waiting is over, the time is right
Come out with the others and fight

No, no, no I’m afraid go away
I am safe here, I’ll wait for another day
If I speak out, some will say I am lying
They will curse me, and add to my crying

Come out, come out, little child and play
The world is ready, you can have your say
I’ll be right here to hold your hand
Together we can heal this land

No, no, no I’m afraid go away
I am safe here, I’ll wait for another day
I’ll wait for love, I’ll wait for the laughter
I’ll wait till I find the peace I’m after

Come out, come out, little child and play
The world is ready, you can have your say
Children everywhere have had enough
They need your strength, it’s time to get tough

No, no, no I’m afraid go away
I am safe here, I’ll wait for another day
You say I’m strong, but I feel so weak
Do you have the answers to the questions I seek

Come out, come out, little child and play
The world is ready, you can have your say
You have the courage, no need to hide
The years of abuse you survived

Come out, come out, little child and play
The world is ready for you
 

TOO FAR IN THE MIDDLE

I can’t move forward, don’t want to look back
Got fear to the right of me, guilt on my left
Doubt and confusion have become my middle name
Sometimes I think I’m going insane

The future’s uncertain, my life’s on hold
I’ll never be free until I get bold
I feel like a child again, trembling with fright
Dreading the footsteps that loom in the night

Too far in the middle, to go back to the start
Too far in the middle, not to listen to my heart
Too far in the middle, to go back and pretend
Too far in the middle, for this pain not to end

I can’t change the past, it’s my cross to bear
Should I speak the truth, should I dare
The years of abuse have taken their toll
Like a heavy weight upon my tired soul

Too far in the middle, to go back to the start
Too far in the middle, not to listen to my heart
Too far in the middle, to go back and pretend
Too far in the middle, for this pain not to end

I can’t stay here forever, just let me catch my breath
Then I will gather all the courage I can find
And challenge the demons in my mind

Too far in the middle, to go back to the start
Too far in the middle, not to listen to my heart
Too far in the middle, to go back and pretend
Too far in the middle, for this pain not to end
 

I’VE BEEN TO HELL

I’ve been to Hell, and I’m here to say
I’m back, yes, I’m back, so get out of my way
I’m older now, I’m stronger now, I’m wiser now
You can’t hurt me now, no, you can’t hurt me now

You took innocence and cast it aside
Now I’m back to turn the tide
You took a child and caused much pain
Now it’s your turn to feel that acid rain

The past was cruel, you can’t deny
A childhood built on a lie
You took a trust and threw it away
For your soul, who will pray

I’ve been to Hell, and I’m here to say
I’m back, yes, I’m back, so get out of my way
I’m older now, I’m stronger now, I’m wiser now
You can’t hurt me now, no, you can’t hurt me now

I felt the pain, I felt the grief
The truth is out, what a relief
You can see the smile upon my face
When all you have is disgrace
You’ll pay for your sins by a higher court
Maybe your life they should abort

I’ve been to Hell, and I’m here to say
I’m back, yes, I’m back, so get out of my way
I’m older now, I’m stronger now, I’m wiser now
You can’t hurt me now, no, you can’t hurt me now
 

JOIN THE FIGHT

There’s a pain in my heart that won’t go away
A weight on my shoulders that’s with me every day
For years I’ve wondered what pulled me down
Why death and I partied all over town

As I grew older, I looked to my past
And soon discovered the answers at last
What I uncovered would curl your hair
But all my problems were solved right there

There’s hope for me, and there’s hope for you
Together we can see this nightmare through
The light at the end is within our sight
So get up the courage and join the fight

There’s strength in numbers, on that I agree
Just two people become a ‘we’
To stop the abuse will be our plan
Reaching out together, standing tall, hand-to-hand

There’s hope for me, and there’s hope for you
Together we can see this nightmare through
The light at the end is within our sight
So get up the courage and join the fight

If we can save just one child, it’s worth the pain
Together we can make a difference
Think of what we’ll gain

There’s hope for me, and there’s hope for you
Together we can see this nightmare through
The light at the end is within our sight
So get up the courage and join the fight

Join the fight
