Beautiful Child
Beautiful Child
You are a beautiful child
And I am a fool once more


You fell in love when I was only ten
The years disappeared
Much has gone by since then
I bite my lip, can you send me away
You touch
I have no choice
I have to stay
I had to stay


Sleepless child
There is so little time
Your eyes say yes
But you don't say yes
I wish that you were mine


You say it will be harder in the
Morning
I wait for you to say, just go
Your hands, held mine so few hours
And I'm not a child anymore


I'm not a child anymore
I'm tall enough
To reach the stars
I'm old enough
To love you from afar
Too trusting. . .yes?
But then women usually are


I'm not a child anymore
No, I'm not a child, oh no
Tall enough to reach for the stars
I will do
As I'm told
Even if I never hold you again
I never hold you again

    i can't help but to think this song is a disturbing look into the mind of a child who has been sexually abused. The confusion of a child growing up thinking that this "event" in thier life was love and coming into the realization that this was wrong,but still struggling with the feelings of this falsehood of love. I don't know maybe i am wrong
