For victims of child sexual abuse.

Verse One:

Shrivelled in the corner,
Is she cold or is she warmer?
In the dark all alone;
This is what she calls home.

Innocence defiled;
Has she ever been a child?
She can't sleep at night,
waiting for that crack of light...

Stretched across the floor,
from the open door.
She dreads the monster coming in;
His hand covers her mouth
as she breathes in...

Chorus One:

If she won't fight,
she can't win.
Afraid of the light,
darkness is what she
puts her trust in.

If she won't stand,
she can't run,
from the monster she now
sees in everyone...

Verse Two:

From the one
who stole her soul,
before she
could take control.

Now shes older,
feeling older every day;
And she grows colder,
wishing for the strength
to run away.


Black on her eyes,
black in her soul.
There is a line,
she never learned
how to control.

So she lets him in,
night after night,
in the form of a different man
every time, cause she
never learned
how to let go.

But open your hands,
little girl,
show the world
what you hide...

And open your heart,
little girl,
show the world,

Chorus Two:

And you will fight;
You will win.
Don't be afraid of the light;
Don't be afraid of anything.

And you will stand;
You will run;
like an ecstatic child,
free and happy and wild...
