I usually post on Mondays, but wanted to share this. Being around One7 for the last two years, I’ve seen, and heard about, a great amount of pain and heartbreak. The kids we work with are facing challenges every day, in school and at home. Something I always say is that everyone has a story. It’s true. Everyone does, and we should take the time to listen. I wrote this song entitled Story, with those thoughts in mind.
Story Copyright 2012 Chris Martin (verse one) There she sits all alone, a smile upon her face The girl in black, the rings and tats In this world, she's so out of place The other kids walk by, without a second glance They can't see that she's dying inside In this world, she just wants a chance (chorus) She wants to tell her story To anyone who will listen She wants to share her heart And find the love that she's been missin' All it takes is just a moment To step into someone else's life Everyone has a story Let's make sure it doesn't end tonight (verse two) On the edge of heartbreak, the pain is always real Even though there are no tears The smile doesn't show what she feels Don't be the one that walks by, without a second glance You can see that she's dying inside Be the one who gives her a chance (repeat chorus) (bridge) A broken home, her Daddy left last week She can't wipe away the tear stains on her cheek She has nowhere to turn, no hope in sight Be the answer to her prayers tonight (repeat chorus)
