There she lays
Asleep in her bed
Dreams of gumdrops and carousels
Dance in her head

Then the door
Opens a crack,
An all-too-familiar face
Turns her on her back

Where was God
When the angels cried?
Where was God
When the flowers died?

He says "It’s all right,"
And "Don’t make a sound."
She folds her hands and starts to pray
God’s nowhere around

Another night
Another dream
Another tear falls down her face
The same ol’ scream

Where was God
When the angels cried?
Where was God
When the flowers died?

Why does it hurt
When Daddy’s here?
Some daddy’s bring gumdrops to their girls
Her daddy brings fear
