Concrete Angel Lyrics

She walks to school with the lunch she packed
Nobody knows what she's holding back
Wearing the same dress she wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with the linen and lace, 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 light
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
When morning comes it will be too late

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

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

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

This song means so much to me! When i heard it it just broke my heart to hear it. Why whold any one want to hit their child. It is just not right and why wouldn't you help that child in need. I would take that little girl and make her my own child. It is so sad. I cry everytime. it's just not right.

This song was shown to me by my older sis and as soon as I saw it the first thing that came to mind was that some people take things for granted when there are kids that that girl that don't even get to see the sunlight that we all see and take for granted

When i was very little, this was my favorite song. It told a story to me. I watched the video almost everyday. I understood the girl died but i didnt really know why. As i grew up i forgot about the song intill i was someway reminded and now that i understand the song And it is a sad song indeed.

This song makes me cry because it reminds me of what I went through but more because there are so many concrete angels out there.

This song is the saddest song I have ever heard but I was sad and wished I could've helped her and I hope nobody will ever do that to their child even though I know many do. I hope that this song tells many people what could happen and

Hello. My name is Raelynn. I'm 16 and have been abused verbally by my parents and physically by my boyfriend for 4 years. I recently got the guts to stand up to my boyfriend which ended me in the hospital and my parents apoligized for ever making me feel like i'm worthless to the extent of me thinking its ok and I deserve to get beat. I'm living proof that it happens and I am here and stronger than ever. Speak up! Take action! Make a difference

This song makes me cry even though I never went through this. My love goes out to all those that had this happen to them.
