At The Bottom Of The Stairs

by Danielle   Apr 14, 2005


At The Top Of The Stairs
I watch this little girl
I watch her body crumble
As she has no one in the world

At The Bottom Of The Stairs
She doesn't quite understand
All alone and crying
Her fears unfurl in my hand

At The Bottom Of The Stairs
She Looks At Her Fresh Scars
So Confused And Lost
She Wants Me To Take Her Far

At The Bottom Of The Stairs
She Prays To Be Blessed
She Can Feel Her Heart Beating
Through Her Broken Chest

At The Bottom Of The Stairs
She Lies Stranded And Alone
Reaching For The Stars
She Doesn't Have A Home

At the bottom of the stairs
Deep inside her little heart
I search for some ray of hope
Before it falls apart

At The Bottom OF The Stairs
I Hear The Baby Sream
Still Reaching For The Light
Still Searching For A Dream

At The Bottom Of The Stairs
She Climbs The First Step
His evil face in her mind
From All The Secrets That She's Kept

At The Bottom Of The Stairs
She Wants Someone To Love
To Make Her Whole Again
To Carry Her Above
