I don't want you to be alone Lonely child like me Lonely child who trusts no one And finds it hard to breathe I know you are on your own No brothers and sisters in your home You are the only one But you don't have to be the lonely one Like I was raised to be Like I was raised to be Like I was raised to be You're my perfection, My clean slate My tabula rasa if you like Oh but birthdays seem so long ago Some days are hanging by a thread You wouldn't notice You were meant to be An angel playing in the dirt In spite of all the hurt Like I was raised to be Like I was meant to be Like I was made to be Like I was meant to be Like I was raised to be Like I was meant to be Like I was made to be Like I was raised to be
