Ghost of a Child

Ghost of a Child

G. Wendell & A. Harley

 

Here in this gray painted room,

listening till they call your name

They come, take you away,

and I say, “I’ll be here waiting.”

And this hurts just so you know,

to bare this burden on my soul

 

You had no choice in the matter.

I silenced your voice and pushed you away.

And now I’m haunted inside.

By the ghost of a child,

Screaming at night, and I’m burning alive.

 

She can’t sleep,

but her mind is exhausted.

She can’t eat,

but her heart is starving.

 

You had no choice in the matter.

I silenced your voice and pushed you away.

What child can forgive, if not given its chance to live?

 

You had no choice in the matter.

I silenced your voice and pushed you away…
