I know that I appear to be strong
As far as the eyes can see
But somewhere deep inside my soul
There is a child in me

We cannot run away from our past
Or pretend that the bruises never did last

So if sometimes I need a hug
Like a child with a badly scraped knee
Please understand that I'm not that strong
And be kind to the child in me
