Lyrics

We Gotta Tell The Secret

Little girl holds her head down in dark shame
Feels she has nothing left, but her given name
Can?t understand why her soul wants to cry
People don?t hear her, they just pass her by.

Little boy sits on the sidewalk all alone
Rather sit out there than be in his home
Been hit too many times to want to be there
Mother and Father just don?t seem to care.

We gotta tell the secret before it?s too late
We gotta protect our children, we can?t wait
We gotta stop all the heartache and pain
We gotta break this cruel abusive chain.

Wife trembles as the car comes up the drive
She never knows if she should run and hide
She cries as her bruised arms open the door
She has been through this many times before.

Husband looks down as he knows what he?s done
To his wife, his daughter and his little son
He knows he needs help, but where does he go
The terrible shame is too heavy to let anyone know.

We gotta tell the secret before it?s too late
We gotta protect our children, we can?t wait
We gotta stop all the heartache and pain
We gotta break this cruel abusive chain.

The husband thinks back about his younger days
The beatings from his father, left him in a daze
He wanted to run, but he didn?t know where to go
Took the beatings like a man, didn?t let the pain show.

The wife thinks about her life as a young girl so sad
Beatings and hitting was all the attention she had
She felt she was the cause of the trouble and pain
She never cried out and she never complained.

We gotta tell the secret before it?s too late
We gotta protect our children, we can?t wait
We gotta stop all the heartache and pain
We gotta break this cruel abusive chain.
We told the secret and it?s not too late
We are protecting our children, we didn?t wait
We are stopping the heartache and the pain
We are breaking the cruel abusive chain.

Yes, we told the secret and we didn?t wait
Yes, we told the secret and our children are safe.
