If only she knew
How strong she’d become
If only she knew
She’s beautiful inside and out

If only she knew then
What she knows now
If only she knew
The light at the end of the tunnel is her

What made her
The person she is now

If only you’ll see
The same as me
Sooner rather than later
Do you see your light now too?
