She stands in the corner with no one around
She’s the girl in the wrecked clothes that nobody knows
Her smiles and laughs seem to fade more each day
And the boy just keeps talking and walking away
The girls with the riches and pearls and the rings,
walk beside her as if she’s just another thing
She stands all alone in the back of the room waiting and wishing for someone new
She tries to scream out for someone to heal all her needs
Seems to be the only one listening is the one that she cannot see
Her arms wrap around her, and her head falls to her knees
She prays to the high one with arm stretched out wide.
Give me forgiveness and love that no one can
Build me up and heal me from the pain they all give
I’m a child and one that wants to live.
