"Broken Seashell" [Lyrics] Don’t hurt your daughter She needs your pride Don’t hurt your sister She breaks inside She feels surrounded by enemies Please don’t hurt the girl That girl is me You sit and gossip that She won’t come around But judgment and criticism Is all she’s found She fights the invisible hands Forcing her to the floor She fights the instincts of survival To run out the door You don’t see her clearly Looking through your clouds Looking at the wrong things Like her bank account Looking at what she should change Not what she’s done Not at the strong, healthy man Her son has become Don’t hurt your daughter She needs your pride Don’t hurt your sister She breaks inside She feels surrounded by enemies Please don’t hurt the girl That girl is me She notices wistfully The pride in her parents' eyes As they behold her siblings' families In which they have pride The look that vanishes As their eyes turn her way The pride that disappears And then her heart frays Broken seashells get left behind Scattered all over the sand Perfect seashells get taken home Precious treasures in the hand
