And we hurt her

She's been there longer than us

She'll be here long after us

She took us in

And we hurt her

 

She gave us a place to live

She gave us food to eat

She gave us water to drink

And we hurt her

 

She gave us things to do

She gave us families to love

She gave us beauty in everything

And we hurt her

 

She changed herself for us to live

She was there for us when no one else was

She wants nothing but the best for us

And we hurt her

 

She loved us

She loves us

She will love us

 

And we hurt her
