Lyrics
Verse
When brought into this world, our eyes are open
To the depths of the ocean.
We swim surrounded by people who chose us
To be in their care.
Soft and malleable… trusting
To be in their care.
Fresh and lively…dependent
Life should be fair.

Chorus
Help me
If only we could
Keep me
If only we could
Safe from
Harm/Safe

Verse
Life should be filled with laughter and comfort
To the end of our days
When power and anger enter into this
Life becomes more than unfair
Then we’ve suffering in the eyes of a child
To the end of their days

Chorus
Instrumental

Bridge
The fan can cool us
Or cut our souls to pieces
Shadows walk the walls
Day and night
Hiding

Chorus
© Laurie H (FLY)

Lovely song

Sorry, gang, I was travelling in Europe when this was posted and I missed it. Glad I chased it down. I really like the way Laura's wonderful vocals sound against Yves' piano. Strong song. Fine arrangement. Fine musicianship. Nice mix/master, too, Freddy. Thanks, Peter.
