Human trafficking is a serious problem in my state. I've not known any occurrence in my town. I couldn't imagine the pain a family goes through when a loved one is taken.
I'm hoping they don't come inside
There is no place to run and hide
While you're out earning your fair share
A latchkey kid doesn't have day care
I want to run away, I want to leave
A knock at the door is more than it seems...
Will they blame themselves?
For what became of me
Taken in the moment they
Turned their backs,
I found my "soul mate" at the age of 10
He took me away, I won't be back again
Everyday he brought something new
Will he be a priest or a business tycoon
Traveled place to place, I didn't go to school
I learned more on the road, I'm nobody's fool..
Taken youth, nowhere to go
I don't have a place to call home..
My old prince has left my side
Found himself with another bride
Oh, the betrayal does so sting
Another woman wears his ring
It cuts so deep, those wounds you leave
I revert into make-believe..
Can't even begin to dream
Taken far from what use to be
Will they recognize me?
