"A Child's Cry" as written by William Zachary Neal Davis, Brett M Jones, Jason Pavilanis and Adam Reiter....
hey little girl dry your eyes your dad he’s on his way don’t hang your dress away hey little boy you’ve cracked your blinds to watch him pull away and he doesn’t see you cry their hearts are soft and gentle and yet you push them away why can’t you open your eyes and see that they’re dying inside where are you going where have you been i’ve waited all night for you again beautiful baby dry your eyes drowning in your lies deceived by your eyes i’m holding onto nothing like water in my hands as it slips away where are you going where have you been i’ve waited all night for you again hoping you’ll someday you’ll realize that i’m drowning in your lies

    General Commentthis is the greatest student rick song especially the last minute. the lyrics are oustanding and make me speechless. Im pretty sure the song is about having your father leave you and you must live life all on your own but you have hope that he will come back someday.

    General CommentI love this song. I cry to it. I feel for the little girl and the little boy and when he (sorry, I don't know their names..only their music..) says "beautiful baby" I want to find him and have his babies. Sorry, it's just something about the way he says beautiful and it's like the 'climax' of the song or whatever..Okay, I'll shush now.
