Rebel Child

You are so young, so carefree
And I wonder sometimes: 
Why are you with me?
It is something I do not know

All I do know is:
That you are everything
But as much times as I have tried
You will not wear a promise ring

The people who have met you
Tell me that you are a preacher’s daughter
Bathed in the blood of the Lamb,
Baptized in muddy water

You were once an innocent little girl;
Your mother’s pride and joy
And your daddy’s whole world
But all that changed

When you started high school
You became so carefree and wild
But no matter what, I love you
And you will always be my rebel child
