Even The Wallflowers (Arends Carolyn)

From the moment you arrived here I've been utterly amazed Astonished at your level of perfection So it breaks my heart in pieces to imagine all the ways You'll get hurt in spite of my protection 'Cause someday I'll have to send you like a soldier off to school And the lesson you will learn there is that kids can be so cruel So however well they like you and whatever grade you get Promise me, baby, that you won't forget Even the wallflowers do survive -- they can thrive Even in the shadows And there is a power in finding out for yourself Rain or shine, whichever way it goes Even the wallflowers grow I hope they choose you early when the captains pick their teams And I pray that they invite you to their dances I hope it doesn't hurt too much the times you skin your knees And that your heart endures it's first romances I cannot imagine anyone not loving you But everybody feels alone at least a time or two And I wish that I could spare you any heartache down the road But maybe then, baby, you never would know Even the wallflowers do survive -- they can thrive Even in the shadows And there is a power in finding out for yourself Rain or shine, whichever way it goes Even the wallflowers Grow in soil that's watered by Every single tear they cry Believe me, baby, you will live And someday you will tell your kid Even the wallflowers do survive -- they can thrive Even in the shadows And there is a power in finding out for yourself Rain or shine, whichever way it goes Even the wallflowers grow
