“Lend Her My Eyes”
I remember that day,
remember the exact day,
when walking home from school she proposed that we take the back way.
And I didn’t even ask the reason for going that way.
I just followed as she guided me.
We’re further down the path way…
We stop at a creek
with no one around
She looked in my eyes, and she slowly broke down.
I asked her what’s wrong.
She said with a tone
of pain in her voice, “I don’t want to go home.”
At home there’s no love;
At home it is rough;
At home they just tell me I’m not good enough.
At home there’s no hope;
At home there’s no help;
At home they compare me to somebody somebody else.
At home I’m just what I wish I couldn’t see.
At home it’s like happy is what I’ll never be.
She’s the greatest piece of art
that I’ve ever seen.
If I could…I would…
Lend her my eyes so she could see what I see.
