Story

(Written for my daughter, Caroline, when it felt like I was the only one who saw how special she is.)  

Lyrics

Little girl, do you see them, do you see them, do you see them

Little girl, don’t believe them, don’t believe them, don’t you grieve them

Cause they don’t see your diamonds, they don’t see your diamonds, they don’t see your diamonds

But I do.  I see you.

 

Little girl, do you hear them, do you hear them, do you hear them

Little girl, don’t you fear them, don’t you fear them, don’t go near them

Cause they don’t hear your angels, they don’t hear your angels, they don’t hear your angels.

But I do.  I hear you.

 

We’ll spit em out like bubble gum

That finds itself on the bottom of our shoes oh

Yeah that’s what we’ll do. Who’s walking on who.

 

Do you feel them do you feel them do you feel them?

Little girl, don’t appeal them, don’t appeal them, you won’t heal them.

Cause they feel your velvet heart, they don’t feel your velvet heart, they don’t feel your velvet heart.

But I do.  I feel you.

 

Little girl, I see you, I see you, I see you.
