Flower ChildSafe she cuddles inside the only world she knows.
Carassing the soft satin that encloses around her.
This is all she experiences and all she wishes to experience.
She is a flower child, inside and out.
Gentle breezes rock her in her slumber.
The warm sun beams through with light.
Small drops of dew in the morning dance around her.
She stretches herself to the sky.
Quiet is her every surrounding.
Not a care or hurt crosses her mind.
She lives in peace, tucked far away.
Hidden from a world she's never known.
But there comes a day where everything changes.
A sudden moment and everything drifts away.
The shell gets cracked and out she falls.
Into a place she could never imagine.
No longer safe inside her skin of satin.
She experiences a world so different from her own.
The sun shines brighter, the rain drops bigger.
The wind quickly carries her away.
She lands on earth she's never encountered.
A strange new sight she's never seen.
She stretches again and looks to heaven.
She'll Never KnowHer name, Ever Silent.
My voice hushed,
She'll never know.
Her chestnut Hair blowing in the wind.
At the drive by. On the highway.
With the top off.
She turns the wheel.
My heart skips a beat.
A slight brush, a sudden rush.
And she'll never know.
I want to believe there's something more in her smile.
Something more in her voice.
Telling me yes.
Telling me to make my move.
But I won't. I can't.
And she'll never know.
The Prodigal SonChildren speak of tragedy
Transgression the whole world over.
Gossip cries and lullabies
And suffering white clover.
A shrieking cut of jealousy
That makes the whole room still.
A piercing silence all around
Not even you could fill.
Oh Lord my God I suffer here
So quietly disclosed.
I took and listened carefully
Of crimes left unexposed.
I begged for mercy over again
For undeserving grace.
My sins, my sorrow seeping out
Left true from my disgrace.
The prodigal son she is but lost
Her home still turned away.
Lull on the road she wonders through
Won't let her guilt display
I Should Have Seen The SunI should have seen the sun.
Felt the rays, all warm and steady.
But my mother she wasn't ready
And wanted me undone.
Oh I'd love to have seen the sun,
My life all wrapped up in twelve weeks
I must protest, but I can not speak.
But time for me its course has run.
Why could I not have seen the sun?
Was it the time? The money you'd pay?
Or maybe I was too inconvenient to stay?
But in this a choice I had none.
I never got to see those rays.
Before my life was taken from me.
With no law on my side I could plea,
Mommy, Daddy, your choice, it pays.
I Still Love YouFour mouths are left crying.
They hunger in pain.
My husband he's somewhere
Getting smashed up again.
He cares not to help me
Brings back what he will.
Returns with the money
What's left from his fill.
Another inside me.
I can not provide.
I can't bring another
In this I confide.
You'll never know suffering.
Like the one I live through.
You'll be better this way
Remember I still love you.
