SURVIVOR

A new anthem to salute adult survivors of child abuse

She remembers her pajamas
With pooh bear and padded feet
That night she lost her innocence
Between daddy's cold, cold sheets
These days she has her own child
As she struggles to get by
And though she fights to hide her secret
Late at night her pillow cries

Survivor, all the battles we've been through
Survivor, it all comes down to me and you
And though the storm is raging and the flesh be torn apart
You're a true Survivor of the heart

He remembers playing baseball
4 for 4 on opening day
Mom missed out on all those seasons
Stepdad never saw him play
Today his own son won the big game
While he was working out of town
Somewhere between forgiveness
And the love that let him down

Survivor, all the battles we've been through
Survivor, it all comes down to me and you
And though the storm is raging and the flesh be torn apart
You're a true Survivor of the heart

Free us, Free us, Free us...

Survivor, all the battles we've been through
Survivor, it all comes down to me and you
And though the storm is raging and the flesh be torn apart
You're a true Survivor of the heart
