Somewhere far away there’s a girl
Who loves your music dearly.
She listens to it in her room
And sings along cheerily.
But then her drunken dad storms in
And rips the earphones out of her ears.
She’s not surprised, for this
Has gone on for many, many years.
He kicks her once, slaps her twice
And tells her to go to bed.
She climbs under the covers
And does exactly as he said.
She begins to listen to your song again
And knows you’re always by her side.
Even though the distance between you
Is a thousand oceans wide.
It’s because of you this girl goes on
As around her covers she is curled.
To the world you’re just one person
But to one person, you’re the world.
