Standing in the road
He's only twelve years old
Watching as his daddy drives away
He's supposed to understand
but he barely knows the man
And all the wishing in the world won't make him stay

Smallest kid in school
She never breaks a rule
If you blink she might just fade into her chair
But at home they yell her name
She's the one who gets the blame
If she could she'd disappear into thin air

They watch our every breath
Like trees turn toward the sun
Be the hand that lifts them up,
not the past they'll overcome

Careless with a word
Becoming what they've heard
Hearts hold scars that bodies can't display
And a parent's love withheld
Freezing what might never melt
All through the generations letting pain replay


See us in their eyes
Reaching up like vines
Each tiny hand to hold, a brand new new start
Despite the hurt done unto us
We can teach them love and trust
And from fragments piece together our own hearts


Be the hand that lifts them up
Not the past they'll overcome
