Martina McBride Concrete Angel Lyrics

Last updated: 12/05/2011 10:00:00 AM

She walks to school with the lunch she packed
Nobody knows what she's holdin' back
Wearin' the same dress she wore yesterday
She hides the bruises with linen and lace

The teacher wonders but she doesn't ask
It's hard to see the pain behind the mask
Bearing the burden of a secret storm
Sometimes she wishes she was never born

Through the wind and the rain
She stands hard as a stone
In a world that she can't rise above
But her dreams give her wings
And she flies to a place where she's loved
Concrete angel

Somebody cries in the middle of the night
The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
When morning comes it'll be too late

[Repeat Chorus]

A statue stands in a shaded place
An angel girl with an upturned face
A name is written on a polished rock
A broken heart that the world forgot

[Repeat Chorus]

If you need help | Reviewer: Haley | 12/4/11

This song is very important to me. When I was seven, this almost exact same thing happened to me, except it was my step dad. There was also some mulestation. If someone is doing this to you, you cant just sit back and hide it. If ANYONE needs any help or advice, just e-mail me, and I can try to help.

this song is amazing!!!

Five stars | Reviewer: Wonderful | 11/14/11

This is an amazing song! I learned not to argue with my sisters. I know how terrible it is to abuse. So, just stop what you are doing for one moment and reflect on how lucky you are. Please help protect the ones abused.

this is so sad! | Reviewer: k.carson | 2/3/09

this song is openly about unconditional love and i think that everybody should have just a little bit of heart in them. all you really need is a little bit if heart to know that abusing is wrong! it makes me cringe every time i here this song.

I LOVE THIS SONG | Reviewer: lindsey g. | 5/30/08

this song is one of my favorites and its very sad and thats why we should try to stop people from abusing helpless children we need to help all of those children out there that are on the verge of dying bcuz of their abusers. we have to help just have too bcuz millions of children have died already and u can help stop millions more from dying if u just lend a helping hand!

thx for reading,
