Lyrics
Questions
When I was a child, why did you hurt me?
When I was a child, why didn't you care?
When I was afraid, why did you shame me into silence?
When I needed your love, why wasn't it there?
When I needed peace, why was there heartache?
When I needed comfort, why was there pain?
Why was I the target of your frustrations
Over and over and over again?

Tell me, will I ever feel like someone worth loving?
Will I ever feel safe and secure?
Can I ever hope to find
A real peace of mind?
Shall I ever feel my soul is clean and pure?

Trust is shattered! Innocence destroyed!
It happens every day to little girls and boys.
Scars for a lifetime, wounds that never heal
Are the legacy you've left to me, a hell so real!
For every child in danger, someone declines to see.
This conspiracy of silence aids the wicked treachery.

I don't know why you didn't protect me
From the evil acts directed at me.
Why did you stand by and never try to stop my suffering?
When your child was abused, why wouldn't you see?
When I tried to talk, you would not hear me.
Was I just an aggravation to you?
Why won't you believe me now when I tell you
Of all the anguishing years I lived through?

Tell me, will I ever feel like someone worth loving?
Will I ever feel safe and secure?
Can I ever hope to find
A real peace of mind?
Shall I ever feel my soul is clean and pure?

Experience has taught me to expect nothing more 
Than the harsh, shameful treatment I've always known before.
But hope comes unbidden that somewhere someday,
Someone will show to me a better way.

Somewhere there's a Father who still loves me.
He knows all the pain I'm feeling today.
Will I ever find courage to trust in Him completely?
When I'm filled with such darkness, how can I pray?
Shall I ever feel He could still love me?
Will I always feel so lost and confused?
Is there something deep inside me that's wicked?
Is that the reason that was abused?

How I long to one day feel like someone worth loving!
How I long to feel safe and secure!
And if I should ever find
A real peace of mind,
Then at last, I'll feel my soul is clean and pure.
