    this is a pretty good one! It is country. It is called The Little Girl, by John Michael Montgomery

    Her parents never took the young girl to church
    Never spoke of his name
    Never read her his Word
    two nonbelievers walking lost in this world
    Took their baby with them
    what a sad little girl

    Daddy drank all day and her mommy did drugs
    Never wanted to play or give kisses and hugs
    She'd watch the t.v. and sit there on the couch
    while her mom fell asleep and her daddy went out
    And the drinking and the fighting just got worse every night
    Behind their couch she'd be hiding oh what a sad little life

    And like it always does the bad just got worse
    With every slap and every curse
    Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
    Used a gun on her mom and then took his life
    And some people from the city took the girl far away
    To a new mom and a new dad kisses and hugs every day

    Her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in
    And a small little girl stared at a picture of Him
    She said I know that man there on that cross
    I don't know his name but I know he got off
    Cause he was there in my old house and held me close to his side
    As I hid there behind our couch the night that my parents died

    oh i have one.

    silverchair - nobody came

    Laying lost and wounded
    Just myself to blame
    Have no life and
    Being hand-fed pain

    Head's a crying wasteland
    Filled with shame
    Cried for help before and
    Nobody came

    His father beats him
    No hesitation
    His face left dripping
    In humiliation

    Head's a crying wasteland
    Filled with shame
    Cried for help before and
    Nobody came

    As he lies wounded
    His father turns to clay
    A frozen statue
    Can't walk away

    Head's a crying wasteland
    Filled with shame
    Cried for help before and
    Nobody came

    To see what I can lose again
    For being the victim

    Disturbed - Down With The Sickness has already been mentioned, although I doubt it's suitable for something at school.

    Also possibly Escape From The A-Bomb House by Less Than Jake.

    song is called house of secrets it is by otep


    Shh It's okay, it's okay
    This is our
    Dirty, little, secret

    We're all alone in the city
    My hands are stoned with pity
    I could get by or get high with fifty yeah
    And I, I, I, don't feel pretty
    Today

    And there's a lady in a stable
    Her daddy reads her fables
    About the moon and his bride
    He's in her room every night
    And feeds upon a table
    Of silken robes, an altar of stone
    But the child is unable
    To run run run
    And flee his tower of babel
    So blood blood blood
    Slithers down her ankles

    We're all alone in the city
    My hands are stoned with pity
    I could get by or get high with fifty yeah
    And I, I, I, don't feel pretty
    Today

    Come one, come all, witness the fall
    Cry to the sky
    Today we break away
    Uprising [x3]
    In the house of secrets
    What happens here stays here, say nothing disappear [x2]
    Uprising, what happens here stays here, uprising, say nothing disappear
    Uprising [x2]

    Locked away
    In the chamber of hysterics
    Here
    In the house
    Of secrets
    In the house of secrets
    I will tell you of loneliness
    Shhhhh

    one really sad sond other then ~the little girl~ is

    ALYSSA LIES

    ~My little girl met a new friend,
    just the other day,
    on the playground at school
    between the tires and the swings

    But she came home with tear-filled eyes,
    and she said to me "Daddy, Alyssa lies"

    Well I just brushed it off at first,
    'cause I didn't know how much my little girl had been hurt
    or the things she had seen.
    I wasn't ready when I said "You can tell me"

    and she said...

    "Alyssa lies to the classroom,
    Alyssa lies everyday at school,
    Alyssa lies to the teachers
    as she tries to cover every bruise"

    My little girl laid her head down that night to go to sleep.
    As I stepped out the room, I heard her say a prayer so soft and sweet
    "God bless my mom and my Dad
    and my new friend, Alyssa
    *oh*I know she needs you bad

    Because Alyssa lies to the classroom,
    Alyssa lies everyday at school,
    Alyssa lies to the teachers
    as she tries to cover every bruise"


    I had the worst night of sleep in years
    as I tried to think of a way to calm her fears
    I knew just what it was I had to do *I knew exactly what I had to do*
    but when we got to school on Monday I heard the news

    My little girl asked me why everybody looked so sad
    the lump in my throat grew bigger
    with every question that she asked.
    Until I felt the tears run down my face
    and I told her that Alyssa wouldn't be at school today

    'Cause she doesn't lie in the classroom
    she doesn't lie anymore at school
    Alyssa lies with Jesus
    because there's nothin' anyone would do

    Tears filled my eyes when my little girl asked me why
    Alyssa lies
    *Oh Daddy, oh* Daddy tell me why
    Alyssa lies





    thats one of my favorite songs ever!!!!!

    What makes this song even more heartbreaking is it's a child that sings it. She has the sweetest voice. Look for the song on youtube.

    Dear Mr. Jesus

    Dear Mr. Jesus, I just had to write to you
    Something really scared me, when I saw it on the news
    A story 'bout a little girl beaten black and blue
    Jesus, thought I'd take this right to you

    Dear Mr. Jesus, I don't understand
    Why they took her mom and dad away
    I know that they don't mean to hit with wild and angry hands
    Tell them just how big they are I pray

    Please don't let them hurt your children
    We need love and shelter from the storm
    Please don't let them hurt your children
    Won't you keep us safe and warm

    Dear Mr. Jesus, they say that she may die
    Oh I hope the doctors stop the pain
    I know that you could save her and take her up to the sky
    So she would never have to hurt again

    Please don't let them hurt your children...

    Dear Mr. Jesus, please tell me what to do
    And please don't tell my daddy
    But my mommy hits me, too.

    Please don't let them hurt your children...

    "All these Lives"-Chris Daughtry

    Doesn't come down when she calls,
    "It's time for breakfast."
    Momma can't get down those halls
    Fast enough to see
    Glass is sprayed across the floor
    From the broken window.
    She can't breathe anymore.
    Can't deny what we know.

    They're gonna find you, just believe.
    You're not a person; you're a disease.

    All these lives that you've been taking,
    Deep inside, my heart is breaking.
    Broken homes from separation.
    Don't you know it's violation?
    It's so wrong, but you'll see.
    Never gonna let you take my world from me.
    The world outside these walls may know you're breathing,
    But you ain't comin' in.
    You ain't comin' in.

    Posters hung on building walls
    Of missing faces.
    Months go by without the cause,
    The clues, or traces.

    They're gonna find you, just believe.
    You're not a person; you're a disease.

    All these lives that you've been taking,
    Deep inside, my heart is breaking.
    Broken homes from separation.
    Don't you know it's violation?
    It's so wrong, but you'll see.
    Never gonna let you take my world from me.
    The world outside these walls may know you're breathing,
    But you ain't comin' in.

    Shed the light on all the ones who never thought they would become
    A father, mother asking why this world can be so cold.

    Doesn't come down when she calls,
    "It's time for breakfast."
    The memories begin to fall.
    She asks, "When will I be free?"

    All these lives that you've been taking,
    Deep inside, my heart is breaking.
    Broken homes from separation.
    Don't you know it's violation?
    It's so wrong, but you'll see.
    Never gonna let you take my world from me.
    The world outside these walls may know you're breathing,
    But you ain't comin' in.

    All these lives that you've been taking,
    Deep inside, my heart is breaking.
    All these lives that you've been taking,
    Deep inside, my heart is breaking.
    All these lives that you've been taking,
    Deep inside, my heart is breaking.
    The world outside these walls may know you're breathing,
    The world outside these walls may know you're breathing,
    But you ain't comin' in.

    Dyers Eve by Metallica is the perfect one:

    Dear Mother
    Dear Father
    What is this hell you have put me through
    Believer
    Deceiver
    Day in day out live my life through you
    Pushed onto me what's wrong or right
    Hidden from this thing that they call life

    Dear Mother
    Dear Father
    Every thought I'd think you'd disapprove
    Curator
    Dictator
    Always censoring my every move
    Children are seen but are not heard
    Tear out everything inspired

    Innocence
    Torn from me without your shelter
    Barred reality
    I'm living blindly

    Dear Mother
    Dear Father
    Time has frozen still what's left to be
    Hear nothing
    Say nothing
    Cannot face the fact I think for me
    No guarantee, it's life as is
    But damn you for not giving me my chance

    Dear Mother
    Dear Father
    You've clipped my wings before I learned to fly
    Unspoiled
    Unspoken
    I've outgrown that f***ing lullaby
    Same thing I've always heard from you
    Do as I say not as I do

    Innocence
    Torn from me without your shelter
    Barred reality
    I'm living blindly

    I'm in hell without you
    Cannot cope without you two
    Shocked at the world that I see
    Innocent victim please rescue me

    Dear Mother
    Dear Father
    Hidden in your world you've made for me
    I'm seething
    I'm bleeding
    Ripping wounds in me that never heal
    Undying spite I feel for you
    Living out this hell you always knew

    I am surprised nobody has mentioned "Sleep" by Stabbing Westward:

    She's been here so many times before
    She can't remember
    When she last felt anything at all
    But this fear and anger
    She stares intently at the door
    Listens for his footsteps
    She knows exactly what's in store
    And the knowing makes it worse

    floating high above her bed
    staring at her father's head
    wishing one of them were dead
    So this hell could finally end

    When he calls her daddy's little girl
    She doesn't hear him
    When he crushes her, she can't feel
    Her screams are silent
    Hides in the corners of her mind
    Where she plays contently
    She leaves this nightmare far behind
    She escapes inside her dreams

    floating high above her bed
    staring at her father's head
    wishing one of them were dead
    So this hell could finally end

    Lyrics for Pat Benetar's "Hell Is For Children"

    They cry in the dark, so you cant see their tears
    They hide in the light, so you cant see their fears
    Forgive and forget, all the while
    Love and pain become one and the same
    In the eyes of a wounded child
    Because hell
    Hell is for children
    And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
    Hell
    Hell is for children
    And you shouldnt have to pay for your love with your bones and your flesh

    Its all so confusing, this brutal abusing
    They blacken your eyes, and then apologize
    Youre daddys good girl, and dont tell mommy a thing
    Be a good little boy, and youll get a new toy
    Tell grandma you fell off the swing

    Because hell
    Hell is for children
    And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
    Hell
    Hell is for children
    And you shouldnt have to pay for your love with your bones and your flesh

    No, hell is for children

    Hell
    Hell is for hell
    Hell is for hell
    Hell is for children

    Hell
    Hell is for hell
    Hell is for hell
    Hell is for children

    Hell
    Hell is for hell
    Hell is for hell
    Hell is for children

    Hell is for children
    Hell is for children

    Here's a song from a new duo that captures what happens to a child when she constantly sees her mother being abused. It's called "MARY JANE" and you can hear it at AndrewVictoria

    Suzanne Vega's Luca is very good. Try The Little Girl by John Michael Montgomery too. It's got a strong christian view point but it's really good.

    don't stop dancing - creed .... i was an abused child and it was what i clung to.


    "Don't Stop Dancing"
    At times life is wicked and I just can't see the light
    A silver lining sometimes isn't enough
    To make some wrongs seem right
    Whatever life brings
    I've been through everything
    And now I'm on my knees again
    But I know I must go on
    Although I hurt I must be strong
    Because inside I know that many feel this way
    [Chorus:]
    Children don't stop dancing
    Believe you can fly
    Away...away
    At times life's unfair and you know it's plain to see
    Hey God I know I'm just a dot in this world
    Have you forgot about me?
    Whatever life brings
    I've been through everything
    And now I'm on my knees again
    But I know I must go on
    Although I hurt I must be strong
    Because inside I know that many feel this way
    [Chorus]
    Am I hiding in the shadows?
    Forget the pain and forget the sorrows
    Am I hiding in the shadows?
    Forget the pain and forget the sorrows

    But I know I must go on
    Although I hurt I must be strong
    Because inside I know that many feel this way

    [Chorus]
    Am I hiding in the shadows?
    Are we hiding in the shadows?

    I don't have any songs but am the author of "His Special Little Girl" which is an extraordinary, credible story endorsed by Dr. Gary Chapman. Google my name as Jody Lynn Rutherford to find this book. I hope maybe you can use my story.
