Up against the wall
You don't stand so tall
Better run run run put your armor on again

She is 12 years old
Nothing she don't know
She says you're 32 but you want to be 16

I know that you did not receive
What it was that you needed when you were
But tell me what's the worth
You're repeating history verse by verse

What do you prove
No matter what you say I think you'll lose
You'll lose
You'll lose her

Up against the wall
You don't stand so tall
Better run run run put your armor on again

Isn't it time we recognized that we all live
Such broken lives sometimes
And it's sad but true that you still carry so
Much with you

    General CommentThis song to me is about carrying on the generational curse of child abuse. The last verse is so true... about us all..

    General CommentYup, agreed. A child who's seen too much for her years. Seen it all, done it all, suffered pain and hurt that she'll carry with her forever.

    General CommentThis song is so good. There are so many kids out there like this these days. It must be hard to realize you are more mature than your own parents.

    And this song is so catchy you can't help but sing along.
