​Dear Mother

This song is by 21 Guns and appears on the album Nothing's Real (1997).

It's a sad, sad story
One that you've heard about
Her name escapes me
She was a lonely child
She was a little wild
What she had
I'm sure I couldn't say
Someone has hurt her
No one can take away
The dreams of yesterday

When we found her she was standing all alone
Too scared to talk about it
Too scared to bring it home

Dear mother, turn around
Is this what girls about?
Dear father, can't you see?
Is this what girls should be?

She's lost in the shadows
Can love find a way?
I've heard no whispers
Blowing up past the plate
Dreams of yesterday

When we found her she was standing all alone
Too scared to talk about it
Too scared to bring it home

Dear mother, turn around
Is this what girls about?
Dear father, can't you see?
Is this what girls should be?

Dear mother, turn around
Is this what girls about?
Dear father, can't you see?
Is this what girls should be?
