Little Darling

Little darling, so innocent.
Oh, the things you can't control.

I don't really know what that's like.

Little darling, everything you could have known
Oh, so close, yet oh, so far.

Is sympathy a decent substitute for empathy?

Little darling, struggling all your life.
Oh, how easy it can be.

I want to help, if that counts for anything.

Little darling, one day you'll see.
Oh, how wonderful your life will be!

I'll make sure you're freed.
