She's young and new to this

She doesn't understand

How cruel this world can be

How hard it is to stand

She isn't quite accustomed

To the way it really is

And she is charging in

With everything she has

So I will take her by the hand

And hold her close to me

I won't let it hurt her

As it has to so many

You once did this for me

Now I will do the same

For you are far away

But I am right nearby

And I won't let her wander off

Till she can really fly
