Hush, little sister Please don't cry I wish I could be there To sing you a lullaby
I can see your arms Bloodied and bruised That's strange, little sister Mine were like that too
I know you scream When Daddy's there Hush, little sister I know you're scared
I can see the way He's hurting you I'm sorry, little sister He did that to me too
I know that people Ignore what's going on at home That makes me angry, little sister You shouldn't have to be alone
Hey, little sister You want to know why I'm not there? It's a sad story, little sister But people should care
You see, little sister One day Daddy got high You were asleep in your crib So you didn't hear my cry
He screamed at me And smashed my head against the door While you slept, little sister I died on the floor
You know, little sister I don't think that I would have died If someone had only bothered To listen to my cries
But hush, little sister Daddy's coming home Quick, get into bed You don't want him to find you alone
I'm sorry little sister He's in a bad mood Run while you can
Uh oh little sister He's lifting his belt Scream while you can, little sister Call for help
Hush little sister You don't need to cry No one can hurt you You're in my arms tonight.

There is a reflection of pain in her eyes, as she fights back tears. Trying to figure out why she has put up with it all of these years. Innocence gone. Just taken away. Struggling to deal with it & be free someday. Tries to tell someone but no one believes her cries. Just another young girl getting some attention through lies. Suicide has crossed her mind but she will not go out that way. Thinking well maybe if he can't find me, he just won't rape me today. Perfect smile. Broken soul. Living in this situation that she just can't control. Things get worse & he beats her more. Loses all self respect for herself when he comes through that door. Fed up & full of hope she tried to fight back. He pulled out a knife, all she saw was black. Out of her misery & out of her pain. Put her in such a place that she can't even explain. But she tried to tell someone although they didn't believe her cries. Just maybe if someone would have listened...this young girl would still be alive.
