Music and lyrics by Jennifer Perryman


<b>(Verse 1)<br />
</b>Dear one, why do you stay so long?<br />
You give more than anyone should.<br />
They feed, and feed and feed off of you<br />
leaving your brittle bones.<br />
You think that you should do more,<br />
but you can't do it all by yourself.<br />
So you point your anger inside,<br />
leaving the bruise of self hate.<br />
<br />
<b>(Chorus)<br />
</b>If you hear it long enough, you start to listen.<br />
If you listen long enought, you start to believe.<br />
And when you start to believe, and when you start to believe, and when you start to believe...you die.<br />
<br />
<b>(Verse 2)<br />
</b>Your eyes show the path to your soul.<br />
I see your broken spirit<br />
that his tongue whipped with his disgust<br />
leaving the lashings of insults.<br />
&quot;You are unfit as a mother,&quot; he scoffs, as he slaps your face.<br />
&quot;Don't yell in front of the child!&quot; he screams, as the child cries.<br />
<br />
<b>(Chorus)<br />
(Bridge)<br />
</b>Just a little kindness is all it takes.<br />
Just a little openmindness is<br />
all it takes, to wipe away the bitterness and blindness.<br />
Oh please...oh please...dear one.<br />
