Once when I was young,
I had no need to hide.
Then the darkness came,
Killing me inside
He took away my childhood,
And sabotaged my mind,
My innocence distorted,
And virtue left behind.
I was just a child.

Once when I was hurt,
I hid the guilt within,
My body left defaced,
My soul lost to his sin.
My mind became a demon
From which I couldn’t hide.
My spirit drowned in sorrow
From tears I never cried.
And I was just a child.

I was just a child.
Hide me in your arms.
Chase away the darkness,
And save me from the harm.
I was just a child,
Just a little girl.
Take away the pain,
And save me from this world.
I was just a child.

Once when I was crushed,
My battered body torn,
You saw into my world
And gave me hope reborn.
You spoke the words of love
I never dreamed I’d hear,
Unlocked my empty heart,
And helped me face the fear,
And I was just a child.

I was just a child.
Hide me in your arms.
Chase away the darkness,
And save me from the harm.
I was just a child,
Just a little girl.
Take away the pain,
And save me from this world.
I was just a child.

Save me!
Save me from the wreckage of my mind.
Heal me!
Let me leave the past behind.
Free me!
Help me drop the chains that hold me down,
So I can fly away.

I was just a child.
Hide me in your arms.
Chase away the darkness,
And save me from the harm.
I was just a child,
Just a little girl.
Take away the pain,
And save me from this world.
I was just a child.

Once upon a time,
There was no need to hide,
‘Til the darkness came,
And I was lost inside.
I was just a child.
