about

(What Michael Jackson said. RIP.)

lyrics

I don't know what it feels like for a child
Cos I was never one
I was never one

I'm instantly old
And born fully-grown
My youth just a flash right past my eyes
I work when I’m told
By a heart of stone
With no time to play out in the park

I’m beaten and blamed
Abused and ashamed
For all that is wrong inside my world
Abandoned and forced
To grow up too fast
And done things I'm not proud of in the past

But now I can do all that I want
I can dance and play and sing my songs
And I’m reaching out to all young ones
And make sure no child is left behind
And break down the cycle of violence
And break down the cycle of violence
And choose to forgive
And choose to forgive
And choose to forgive
