Rob the Cradle

Lyrics by Jennifer Storm © 9/6/2008

Just a little girl twelve years old
All new curves and confusion to boot
Didn’t know any better, was never told any different
I took a sip and you took my life
I took a dive and you took my will to survive

Gone are the days of afternoon playtime
Fast are the sleepless nights of fear and darkness
Hearing creaks and thinking you’re behind the door
So another drink I learned to pour

You may have robbed the cradle
But you didn’t break my spirit
You may have stolen my innocence
But you’ll never take my life
You may have robbed the cradle
But you didn’t break my spirit

Today the scars run deep
The nightmares are still mine to keep
But my heart beats red and bright
And gone are the days I fear you or the night

You may have robbed the cradle
But you didn’t break my spirit
You may have stolen my innocence
But you’ll never take my life
Cuz you may have robbed the cradle
But you didn’t break my spirit

Now I extend my hand
A walk others through this troubled land
To keep what I have I give it away
I broke free and made a new day

Cuz you may have robbed the cradle
But you’ll never take our spirits
And you may have stolen our innocents
But you’ll never take our lives
