Everything is gonna be alright, she whispers to herself
She was only 6 years old that night, as she hid behind that shelf
'Cause daddy had a little too much to drink
And mama didn't want her to feel the pain she felt
But she still felt the pain

Well, 10 years they came and went and Dad was gone
So she looked for love in other men and tried to act strong
Oh, broken hearts and scars in only places she could see
'Cause she just wanted, she just wanted to feel something

And as she sat there on her bed
Thinking about what those girls said
Tears streamed from her eyes
She cried

If there's a God out there
Please hear my prayer
I'm lost and I'm scared
And I got nowhere else to go
I've come a long, long way
But I'm not sure I can make it much farther
So if you're listening
Could you give a helping hand to your daughter

Well her path started to change, she reached out and grabbed God's grace
And finally she saw light, until the night
Where she decided one drink was alright and one thing led to another
The next thing you know, nine months go by and she's a mother

And as she laid there in the bed
Stroking that small angel's head
Tears stream from her eyes
She cried

If there's a God out there
Please hear my prayer
I'm lost and I'm scared
And I got nowhere else to run
I've come a long, long way
But I'm not sure I can be the best mother
So if you're listening
Well could you give a helping hand to your daughter

Well that baby grew into a boy
Who became her pride and joy
He loved her like no man could
And her heart felt peace 'cause she finally understood God's love

So as she laid there in the bed, 99 years old
She grabbed her sons hand and said
There's something you must know

There is a God out there
Who heard my prayer
I was lost and afraid
And I had nowhere else to go
I had no clue what to do
And then he sent me you
So if you're lost and afraid
And you feel so alone
Don't worry child, there's a father who will love you as his own
Just like he loved his daughter
Like he loved his daughter
