Concrete angel

by Martina McBride

She walks to school with the lunch she packed
Nobody knows what she´s holdin´ back
Wearin´ the same dress she wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with linen and lace

The teacher wonders but she doesn´t ask
It´s hard to see the pain behind the mask
Bearing the burden of a secret storm
Sometimes she wishes she was never born

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In a world that she can´t rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where she´s loved
Concrete angel

Somebody cries in the middle of the night
The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
When morning comes it´ll be too late


A statue stands in a shaded place
An angel girl with an upturned face
A name is written on a polished rock
A broken heart that the world forgot
