“Careful the things you say,
Children will listen.
Careful the things you do,
Children will see.
Children may not obey,
But children will listen.
Children will look to you
For which way to turn,
To learn what to be.
Careful before you say,
“Listen to me.”
Children will listen.”
“At first, I was afraid, I was petrified.
Kept thinkin’ I could never live
Without you by my side,
But then I spent so many nights
Thinkin’ how you did me wrong.
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along.”
“Well, now go! Walk out the door!
Just turn around now,
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore!
Weren’t you the one
Who tried to hurt me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d crumble?
Did you think I’d lay down and die?”
“Someday I will ask myself if I was disillusioned
I will ask myself if I have proven
That I made it on my own terms
Yeah I may have suffered some burns but I am
Living my dreams and I am who I wanna be
But you say life is a battlefield
And you have given me the arms
You say I have to fight
I have to keep moving on
On this path that you’ve tread
On this map that is yours
Well I have to say, have to say, have to say
That I can’t fight your war, I can’t fight your war”
“Guess there’s something wrong with me
Guess I don’t fit in
No one wants to touch it
No one knows where to begin
I’ve got more than one membership
To more than one club
And I owe my life
To the people that I love”
“Do not put your faith in a cape and a hood.
They will not protect you the way that they should.
And take extra care with strangers,
even flowers have their dangers,
And though scary is exciting,
Nice is different than good.
Now I know, don’t be scared.
Granny is right, just be prepared.
Isn’t it nice to know a lot?
..And a little bit.. not.”
