A little pain in a little heart

I heard you all along I was selfish I closed my ears to you A young boy inside Felt he had to hide I don’t know how to love I always find a way to run On the run On my own Is my home A young boy inside Feels all alone Holding everything back Scared of the outside I have my reasons Crying alone at night No way To get away A little boy escapes Through toys in the day A little pain in a little heart A little innocence A little family torn apart I know you were always there I wasn’t the best at listening Thank you for showing me the way You kept me together Through hard times You sent angels by my side Bottled my tears When I thought no one was near Counted my hairs When I thought no one cared
