This is a note for a girl I know who I think is headed towards a bad place, but I pray everyday she'll be okay.

I see your innocent light

It’s not shining quite as bright

You say you won’t change

But I’m really worried for you

I’m really worried


You are so beautiful

That’s what’s so horrible

Could it be so simple?

I can already see it in your eyes

I can already hear it in your voice 

You're too young to be so mean

I pray that this wont come to be


Little girl, you’re not ready for the world

And if I could, I’d keep you from it

Little girl, your candle’s fading fast

Wish I could keep it bright

You’re the closest thing I have

So whatever you will be

Don’t be anything like me


I know what’s coming to you

Wish I never felt it

Just please don’t be like me

I’m begging, and I plead

Never be just like me


Once upon a time, I thought you were for me

Thought I could save you

Thought I could change you

Into something wonderful

Now I see that’s not my part

And I don’t want you to see what I've seen
