Lyrics: 

Out of earshot

She’s just a young girl doing her best
To make it through young years
Those full of tribulations
And cruelty and tears

The other girls are so unkind
I cannot understand why
I’ve looked at it from there side
I’ve really really tried

I really didn’t want to see her hurt
Or sent into severe shock
I ensured she didn’t hear those words
It was all out of her earshot

She had a reputation
I know it wasn’t fair
But once they have given it you
It’s harder to repair

At that tender age
The dangers are so high
It’s hard to know if its best
to let sleeping dogs there lie

I really didn’t want to see her hurt
Or send into severe shock
I ensured she didn’t hear those words
It was all out of her earshot

I just pray we’ve given her strength
The strength to see her through
That she has the moral high ground
They don’t have a clue

I’ve tried my best to help her out
She’s looking good to me
They say if cruelty don’t kill you
It will really set you free

I really didn’t want to see her hurt
Or send into severe shock
I ensured she didn’t hear those words
It was all out of her earshot

Sorry had to get my morning chores out the way before I could join this one. Finally posted it though and listening through others...Thanks for being such a trooper with the skirmishes! Biggrin Well done getting the extra bonus words in here. I'm still amazed how you get the demos sounding so full within an hour!

Wow - you got a lot in there. I like the delivery of the chorus especially - almost like a gentleman apologetically explaining to a parent or whoever what he did to help a young lady and keep her innocent.

This is really lovely. Great moral story told tenderly with your musical treatment.
