I see her as a little girl hiding in her room
She takes another bath
And she sprays her Momma's perfume
To try to wipe away the scent he left behind
But it haunts her mind
You see she's his little rag
Nothing more than just a waif
And he's mopping up his heed
She is tired and afraid
Maybe she'll find a way through
These awful years to disappear

Ask me if I think
There's a God up in the heaven
Where did He go in the middle of her shame?
Ask me if I think
There's a God up in the heavens
I see no mercy
And no one down here's naming names
Nobody's naming names

Now she's looking in the mirror
At a lovely woman face
No more frightened little girl
Like she's gone with out a trace
Still she leaves the light burning in the hall
It's hard to sleep at all

Till she crawls up in her bed
Acting quiet as a mouse
Deep inside she's listening
For a creaking in the house
But no one's left to harm her
She's finally safe and sound
There's a peace she has found

Ask her how she knows
There's a God up in the heaven
Where did He go in the middle of her shame?
Ask her how she knows
There's a God up in the heavens
She said His mercy is bringing her life again
