World is covered by our trails
Scars we covered up with paint
Watch them preach in sour lies
I would rather see this world through the eyes of a child,
Through the eyes of a child

Darker times will come and go
Times you need to see her smile
And mother's hands are warm and mild
I would rather feel this world through the skin of a child
Through the skin of a child

When a human strokes your skin
That is when you let them in
Let them in before they go
I would rather feel alive with a childlike soul
With a childlike soul

Please don't leave me here

    General CommentThis seems to be one of the songs closest to Aurora's heart. I was fortunate enough to hear her sing this in concert, and by the end of it, almost everyone in the audience was moved to tears. At the end, we forgot to clap and just stood there in silence for what felt like a very long time. It was an incredible moment.
