She walks to school with the lunch
She packed
Nobody knows what she's
Holdin' back

Wearin' the same dress
She wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with linen
And lace

(Oh oh)

The teacher wonders but she
Doesn't ask
It's hard to see the pain
Behind the mask

Bearing the burden
Of a secret storm
Sometimes she wishes she was
Never born

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In a world that she can't rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where
She's loved
Concrete angel

Somebody cries in the middle
Of the night
The neighbors hear, but they turn
Out the lights

A fragile soul caught in the hands
Of fate
When morning comes
It'll be too late


A statue stands in a shaded place
An angel girl with an upturned face
A name is written on a polished rock
A broken heart that the world forgot
