Closest to me she must be a good child?
Don't ignore the signs, that's right
You be her teacher, taking

Shivering, she awakes in the cold sweat
Terrified so she speaks under her breathe
Makes a fake cry for help, she's a real mess
That's the sign of the stress, ma, listen to her

Heartbeats working overtime in her chest
Scared stiff from approaching footsteps
Ignoring the stains on her torn dress
Come now ma, listen to her

How could you put your own child in danger?
And turn around and take the words of a stranger
You didn't wanna face the facts so you blamed her
Too late ma, you should have listened to her

Gone, she's asleep, finally, she's at peace
With the angels
Gone, out of reach, finally, souls in peace
With the angels

She's fading like a delicate flower
Try to wash away the shame in the shower
Defending him left her feeling overpowered
You were wrong ma, you didn't listen to her

It was there in the words of the letter
Had you read it maybe things would be better
You let her down and I won't let you forget her
Save ya tears ma, you should have listened to her

How could you put your own child in danger?
And turn around and take the words of a stranger
You didn't wanna face the facts so you blamed her
Save ya tears ma, you didn't listen to her

Gone, she's asleep, finally, she's at peace
With the angels
Gone, out of reach, finally, souls in peace
With the angels

Why day, why day
Why day, why day

Gone, she's asleep, finally, she's at peace
With the angels
Gone, out of reach, finally, souls in peace
With the angels

Gone, she's asleep, finally, she's at peace
With the angels
Gone, out of reach, finally, souls in peace
With the angels

Gone, she's asleep, finally, she's at peace
With the angels
Gone, out of reach, finally, souls in peace
With the angels

Gone, she's asleep, finally, she's at peace
With the angels
Gone, out of reach, finally, souls in peace
With the angels
