There are some people who's souls you can only see when they're crying. It's hard to love those kind of people, because most of the time they're hiding inside.

One winter afternoon in Branson MO, I saw her soul for the first time. She was crying and talking about how she felt abandoned by her family. We sat outside on a picnic table and talked for awhile like that, this song is just a part of that conversation.

Lyrics

She said, what do you see in me
that would make you stay right here
if you get famous with those songs that you write?

She says, you can do better than me
but that's not what I see
because she wheres her soul
just right behind her eyes

I see a beautiful girl
who's been wounded by the world
with a heart so broken
she tries to hide away
but she just wants to be accepted
to be important somehow
when I look at her, that's all I'm seeing now

She says, one day you'll leave
that's what I believe
and I just look at her, shake my head
I ask, why would I do that,
when you're the only one I know
that when I gave my love to you
you gave it back

I see a beautiful girl
who's been wounded by the world
with a heart so broken
she tries to hide away
but she just wants to be accepted
to be important somehow
when I look at her, that's all I'm seeing now

I see the child inside when I look into her eyes
she's afraid of dying lost and all alone
I could never leave her
'cause I know I'd break her heart
and in her heart is where I finally found a home.

I see a beautiful girl
who's been wounded by the world
with a heart so broken
she tries to hide away
but she just wants to be accepted
to be important somehow
when I look at her, that's all I'm seeing now
