Raindrops on her cheek,
But the sky is dry.
School uniform is torn,
But she won't say why.
Now Alice are you okay?
Are you sure that you're fine?
Is there somethin' your tryna hide?

Girls and boys alike
Time to end this fight
Before it's too late
Now you just gotta know
I'm here for you
And I will fight until I'm
Black and blue
Cause sticks and stones,
May break my bones
But it's all worthwhile
If I got you
Because I'm here for you
For you, for you
Because I'm here for you
For you, y-y-you
Because I'm here for you

Daydreamin' out the window
Prayin' for help
Too young to talk but he knows
A leather belt
No Sonny is not okay
Cause, I heard his cry
And his daddy still denies

Girls and boys alike
Time to end this fight
Before it's too late
Now you just gotta know
I'm here for you
And I will fight until I'm
Black and blue
Cause sticks and stones,
May break my bones
But it's all worthwhile
If I got you
Because I'm here for you
For you, for you
Because I'm here for you
For you, y-y-you
Because I'm here for you

Cause I am just like you
But I got away
These bruises make me
Who I am today
And no, I'm not okay
I'm just great
Pemas by my side
Thank you Mr. Wade

And you just gotta know
I'm here for you (you, you, you, you)
And I will fight until
I'm black and blue (blue, blue, blue, blue)
Cause sticks and stones
May break my bones
But it's all worth while
If I've got you...

    General CommentI think it's about child abuse, in different forms. Physical, sexual, emotional. And she's saying that she's there for kids who have been abused because she has been too, and she made it through. Beautiful.
