Away in the dark
A little girl cries
Why did see suffer
Why did he lie

Each morning was the same
With the yelling and fights
He would hit her once more
Before she returned home at night

The bruises were always there
Beneath her tattered dress
The other children laughed at her
But at least she was beat less

One night she came home
To see him in his chair
She turns as quickly as she can
From that hateful glare

But tonight is the last time
He'll finished what was start
She cries tears of joy
At the stopping of her heart

Now she can live
With her Heavenly Father above
There she will be free
There she will be loved...
