Concrete Angel



She walks to school with a lunch she packedNobody knows what she's holdin' backWearin' the same dress she wore yesterdayShe hides the bruises with linen and laceOoh
The teacher wonders, but she doesn't askIt's hard to see the pain behind the maskBearing the burden of a secret stormSometimes she wishes she was never born
Chorus:Through the wind and the rainShe stands hard as a stoneIn a world that she can't rise aboveBut her dreams give her wingsAnd she flies to a place where she's lovedConcrete angel
Somebody cries in the middle of the nightThe neighbors hear, but they turn out the lightsA fragile soul caught in the hands of fateWhen morning comes, it'll be too late
Repeat Chorus
A statue stands in a shaded placeAn angel girl with an upturned faceA name is written on a polished rockA broken heart that the world forgot
Repeat Chorus...
