"Life is beautiful, but it's complicated... we don't need to understand. There are miracles, miracles..."


Somewhere out there is a lonely girl
With innocent eyes and soft brown curls
A girl who found out, too early, too hard
That the people we love bring the deepest scars

Somewhere out there is a lonely boy
Who closes his heart to what his eyes can't avoid
A boy who found out, too early, too hard
That violence and fear will never be far

Somewhere out there is a child who cries
A child who feels alone and doesn't know why
A child who found out, too early, too hard
That it's impossible to understand and not be torn apart

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
