Where the little ones dwell that's lost in the night Be sure of your journey, beware of your plight When love has failed you and all seems lost The path that you choose will come with a cost The choices you make are yours to keep Mired in frustration, you're buried too deep Escaping the past was your only plan Running away from where it began The hurt seems to follow where ever you run Nothing can change the things that's been done Forced to grow up before you were grown Abandoned by love, you're now on your own The dreams that you take move further away They have to be earned and you'll have to pay Though life is a gift, freedom has a cost In finding yourself sometimes you get lost
