"Hurting Child" as written by and Christopher Michael Perry George Koichi Nozuka....
In the middle of the night,
No one heard the boy
Who cried himself to sleep
Didn't care about himself 'cause he
Hurt too much, he was hurt too much
And the burden of the world was put
On a hurting child, hurting child
Who never smiled
The world was put on the hurting child,
Hurting child
I sing for the hurting child
I sing for the hurting child

In the middle of the fight
No one saw the girl who thought it
Was her fault, didn't know about her pain
Though it was right there
No one said they cared
And the burden of the world was put
On a hurting child, hurting child
Who never smiled
The world was put on the hurting child,
Hurting child
I sing for the hurting child

I sing for the children, dream for the children,
Cry for the children now
So I sing for the children, dream for the children,
Smile for the children now
Said the world was put
On a hurting child, hurting child
Who never smiled
The world was put on the hurting child,
Hurting child
I sing for the hurting child

I sing for the children, dream for the children,
Cry for the children now
So I sing for the children, dream for the children,
Smile for the children
...I was that hurting child

    General Commenti was recently at one of George's concerts, and he basically explained how this song was about how there are so many people in the world who are 'hurting', but at the same time, are so strong. how they're able to continue on everyday, and survive even though they're living in terrible conditions (as a general statement)

    "I sing for the children, dream for the children, cry for the children now"

    - he talked about how he was once the 'hurting child' - but he never gave up and was able to overcome that, and now he is trying to give others hope, and strength.
