My life is a gift, I cherish it so
But there is so much to me you just don't know.
Mirror mirror on the wall,
I watched you you burn.
I watched you fall.
The scars and tears and battered eyes.
I spun a web, a web of lies.
I said I'd keep you warm and safe
You wanted love and you wanted faith.
I stomped on that, I shut you down.
I made you cry, I made you frown.
I tried to kill you, I tried to take your life.
With a bottle of booze and a jagged knife.
I am so sorry I brought you to this place.
So much time I took of yours and put to waste.
I saw you though, so scared with shame and fear.
I want you to know that I am near.
I will pick you up so you can shine your light.
Little girl, you no longer have to fight.
For God came to me and showed a way.
To bring you to another day.
So wipe your tears and dry your face.
I'll take you home, to your happy place.
