Concrete Angels

She walks to school with the lunch she packed 
Nobody knows what she's holdin' back 
Wearin' the same dress she wore yesterday 
She hides the bruises with linen and lace 

The teacher wonders but she doesn't ask 
It's hard to see the pain behind the mask 
Bearing the burden of a secret storm 
Sometimes she wishes she was never born 

Through the wind and the rain 
She stands hard as a stone 
In a world that she can't rise above 
But her dreams give her wings 
And she flies to a place where she's loved 
Concrete Angel 

Somebody cries in the middle of the night 
The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights 
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate 
When morning comes it'll be too late

Through the wind and the rain 
She stands hard as a stone 
In a world that she can't rise above 
But her dreams give her wings 
And she flies to a place where she's loved 
Concrete Angel 

A statue stands in a shaded place 
An angel girl with an upturned face 
A name is written on a polished rock 
A broken heart that the world forgot 

Through the wind and the rain 
She stands hard as a stone 
In a world that she can't rise above 
But her dreams give her wings 
And she flies to a place where she's loved 
Concrete Angel

Below is a list of songs that deal with the subject of child abuse. You can click on the link below the list that will take you to the next song and then follow the links to read all of the lyrics or you can choose one from the list below.

If you know of any songs that I do not have listed below, please send me an e-mail with the title of the song and who sings it and I will add the song if I feel it is appropriate. I will NOT add songs with explicit
lyrics, cussing or songs that deal with children killing their abusers.

Some of the songs listed below may contain lyrics that actually do describe the abuse that children suffer, though I have tried to be very careful about just what extent they describe things. I feel the songs are important in getting the message out, about child abuse. I also feel it is possible to get the message out without cussing and without explicit lyrics.

I would also like to add that while I have lyrics here that were written and sung by what some people would consider "hard core" musicians, I don't so much think that who writes and sings is what is important. I believe that the message they send in a certain song is what matters.

You can click below for the next song and then follow the buttons or you can click on a song from the list below.
