Lyrics

Six Years Old

Sometimes you meet a girl and wonder if she’s all right
Why do her eyes look sad and scared
Why is she silent when she should be smiling, laughing

She was six years old staring down at shiny shoes in Sunday school
Feeling the weight of the world
If her mother knew
She would do her best to make it right again
To help her be a child again

Sometimes you meet a girl and wonder what happened to her
Was it the man across the street who left a mark indelibly
Upon her life

She was six years old, staring down at shiny shoes in Sunday school
Feeling the weight of the world
If her mother knew
She would do her best to make it right again
To help her be a child again

Oh little girl, I know you’re scared
To say what happened
It feels so wrong, so sad and strange
You wander lonely and afraid
Down broken sidewalks

You were six years old
Staring down at shiny shoes in Sunday school
Feeling the weight of the world
If your mother knew
She would do her best to make it right again
To help you be a child again
