Little babies eyes

How will I tell you? 
Of all the pain 
All the insanity 

How do you look them in the eyes? 
Stare at their innocence 
All their sweet ignorance 

Little babies eyes 

Their tiny hands 
So delicate 
So young 

I will not let this happen 
Not to my children 
But, what shall I do? 

Do I expose them? 
Should they run free? 
Is protection needed? 

Little babies eyes 

So sweet 
So lovely 
So new 

How could I do this? 
Should I have brought you here? 
Your so fragile 

Little babies eyes 

I don’t want harm 
But the world is so cruel 
I swore I wouldn’t 

I wouldn’t let harm come 
Wouldn’t let you fear 
Have I failed? 

Little babies eyes 

How will I tell you? 
Of all the pain 
All the insanity
