Problem child, only child
Lost in a world that won’t understand

Problem child, only child
Fighting your battles in a world that you created

And we waited
Catching glimpses of the man you’d be
Never dreaming we could lose you
Never get the chance to watch you free
The love that you held inside
Love you preferred to hide

Never show weakness, never show weakness, ever…

Problem child strong and wild
Crossing the line time after time
Problem child proud and wild

Gaining acceptance from the people
Who would use you
And they schooled you
To accept their need

They watched you bleed
As it ruled you and confused you
Making you believe you should deceive
The love that was all around
How could it let you down?

Leaving us aching, empty and aching

Problem child, only child
Lost in a world that won’t understand
Problem child strong and wild
Lost in a world that won’t understand
Problem child, only child
Crossing the line time after time
Problem child, only child
Fighting your battles

But the problem child’s at peace now.
