Chani's Painting

Child Inside

Child Inside, don't run and hide
I'm gonna love you like nobody could
I know deep down inside
You wanted to be good
Child Inside

Daddy was a military man
And he was the leader of the band
But he forgot when he got back home
We were just a family
We all thought we'd joined the infantry

Child Inside, don't run and hide
I'm gonna love you like nobody could
I know deep down inside
You wanted to be good
Child Inside


Mama liked to drink in the afternoons
A little beer in the bottle
And we'd watch our own cartoons
I found out real early
How to numb this pain inside
And I locked up all the teardrops
I needed to have cried
Child of Sorrow
Child of tears
There'll be a better day tomorrow
Child of tears
She sits on the floor by the front door
So no one can see she's alone
There are no curtains on the windows
And nobody else at home
She's nine years old and her mom works nights
Daddy's somewhere on the go
So many feelings she's learned how not to show
What are the reasons I think you know.

Child of Sorrow
Child of tears
There'll be a better day tomorrow
Child of tears

Daddy blames mama and mama blames dad
She's a rope in a tug of war
She aims to please and she tries to appease
Then she asks herself what for
So many feelings she's learned how to ignore
What are the reasons, I think you knows


Child of Sorrow
Child of tears
There'll be a better day tomorrow
Child of tears



The years go by on this empty place inside
And my heart cries let it be
God please heal this empty part of me

Now I am a father with children of my own
My hurting heart had held me back
From making them a home
But I believe in who they are inside
And I hope they each can see
They are loved, God is near
And they each have dignity

Child Inside, don't run and hide
I'm gonna love you like nobody could
I know deep down inside
You wanted to be good
Child Inside
