It's a great big world
to a scared little girl.
If you smile just right
no one knows you might
have a heart full of pain
and a soul that can't reign
and a stomach full of butterflies...
The pain of the last season of my life has been intense.
Beyond measure, beyond understanding.
But, even so,
I still breathe.
I'm alive and not without hope.
As I begin a new day,
I put the pain in a clean, new box
and close the lid.
Destined to be a collector of dust,
I slide it up onto a high shelf.
Turn out the light and close the closet door...
it is time.
I turn my back and walk into the light.
The light of that new day
full of possibilities and hope.
Of love and promise...
And perhaps someday
you will say you didn't mean it.
Say you didn't mean to
Say I wouldn't understand
But it's time you say something
G-d knows it's the one thing I need
And the heart you broke,
No it wasn't just anybody's heart
