Sun setting on the street
Your dad told you not to look at me
Down came the fist hard upon your head


I was the only other adult around
I was the only other adult around
I was 18, you were 8, maybe you were 10

CHORUS

He said she's not gonna help you
He said she's not
I just thought he looked like a powerful man
I just thought he looked like a powerful man


My good friend convinced me to turn around
My good friend says, 'I think I saw a light on'
We walked through the dead halls
Looking for teachers and we found one


But she didn't look too happy to see us
She didn't look too happy to see us
"How should I know?", she said
"That man you just described could be anyone"

CHORUS


I just thought he looked like a powerful man
I just thought he looked like a powerful man
I just thought he looked like a powerful man
I just thought he looked like a powerful
Looked like a powerful
Looked like a powerful
Looked like a powerful man

    General CommentThis song is about a true incident. Frances saw a man abusing his child and was too intimidated to act.
