Little girl, will you ever let the world in?
Lonely child, crying without a friend
Why are you so bitter? You never made yourself known
You say your thoughts to God alone
Little girl will you ever let the world in?

Little boy, did innocence end too soon?
A father's hand betrayed the trust in you
Why are you so bitter? You say you brought it on
Yourself
You speak your mind with thoughts of no one else
Little boy, did innocence end too soon?

[PRE-CHORUS:]
And we say the choices they made have led them to where they are now
But when does the world step in and raise up the child
That's fallen down?
There's so much we can do – it's right there before our eyes
But our arms remain by our sides

[CHORUS:]
In this land of illusion
So much conclusion when we first open our eyes
They dream of tomorrow, but only sorrow is what's
Realized

[BRIDGE]

[PRE-CHORUS]

[CHORUS]
