When I Was A Child (Ward Bill)

Look in my eyes, can you see who I am Look in my eyes, see if you understand Troubled and hardened there's safety in rage So when I was a child I kept building a cage Look in my eyes, can you see who I am Look in my eyes, can you see who I am Look in my eyes, can you see who I am Look in my eyes, can you see who I am I felt love fragment heartache In my body as a child Oh yeah and I remember Being taught to not run wild What about all those promises And the failures to proceed And I seem to recall now My own hunger and your greed Look in my eyes and you see who I am Look in my eyes see if you understand With complex compassion, I've tried to stay near But when you found wrong I would never appear Look in my eyes, can you see who I am Look in my eyes, can you see who I am Look in my eyes, can you see who I am Look in my eyes, can you see who I am When I searched for the father And the son and the holy ghost I felt blows from my neighbors Who were lost and hurt me most For the millions of children The Sao Paulos everywhere I've remembered who I am I'm a child who wants to share Look in my eyes, can you see who I am Look in my eyes, see if you understand Troubled and hardened there's safety in rage So when I was a child I kept building a cage Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
