Lyrics

Sun's setting on the street
Your dad told you not
to look at me
Down came the fists
hard upon your head.
I was the only other adult around
I was the only other adult around
I was 18
You were 8, maybe
You were 10.

He said, "She's not gonna help you"
He said She's not-

I just thought he looked like
a powerful man

My good friend convinced me to
turn around
My good friend said
"I think I saw a light on"
We walked through the dead halls
looking for teachers and
we found one
but she didn't look too happy to see us
She didn't look too happy to see us
"How should I know" she said
"The man you just described
Could be anyone."

He said, "She's not gonna help you"
He said She's not-

I just thought he looked like
A powerful man.
