Who Speaks For Me lyrics

It's 4 o'clock in the morning and I'm too afraid to sleep
I never know when I'll hear him sneak through my door
Been paying me little visits for more than a year now

If I could only fight back, I wouldn't take any more

So who speaks for me when I'm too young to fight?
Who speaks for me in the black of the night?
Who speaks for me?

Last kid off the bus, I'm standing in the driveway
Still feeling the sting from yesterday's bruise
The smell of whiskey and smoke spilling out the doorway
Step inside or run away, I'm not old enough to choose

So who speaks for me when I'm too young to fight?
Who speaks for me? Who's gonna make this right?
Who speaks for me?

You can't pretend that you don't know me
I am the kid next door
The quiet one you never speak to
The problem you ignore

3 o'clock in the morning, I'm sitting in the driveway
Momma told me to run but I only got this far
I heard the screams and the shots, I heard my momma crying
Now they're taking her away in a black and white care

So who speaks for me when I'm too young to fight?
Who speaks for me in the middle of the night?
Who speaks for me?

Who's gonna make this right?
Who speaks for me? 'Cause I'm too young to fight
Who speaks for me?
Who speaks for me?
Somebody speak for me 'cause I'm too young to fight
Who's gonna speak for me?
Who's gonna make it right?
