Lyrics

We met in the school yard, PS25
Her blond locks of hair hid the shame in her eyes
She was the best friend that I ever had
But I never knew why she was always so sad
When she had to go home to her dad
Cause her mom worked the night shift

Jennifer, why did you run from him crying
Jennifer, what did your Daddy do?
Jennifer, inside I know you were dying
Jennifer, life was the pain that you knew

She gets on the bus, she is running away
There?s no one to tell, there is nothing to say
She doesn?t look back cause she knows if she does
They will know who she is, what she did who she was
And she?ll run for the rest of her life
Cause she thinks that he?ll find her

Jennifer, why did you run from him crying
Jennifer, what did your Daddy do?
Jennifer, inside I know you were dying
Jennifer, life was the pain that you knew

Once every year, there?s a letter from Jen
I hear in her heart, how she?s so scared of men
Yet she acts as if, there is nothing to fear
But she runs every time, there?s a man who draws near
And she?ll never let anyone in
Even if they do love her

Jennifer, why did you run from him crying
Jennifer, what did your Daddy do?
Jennifer, inside I know you were dying
Jennifer, life was the pain that you knew
