Lyrics

SEE ME GROW
from the album Paler Shade – Storyville Records 1993
Words & Music: Pam Mark Hall


I would stagger throught the dark night of my soul
Welcome sleepless nights to wrestle all alone
As I grieve the death of love and hope and dreams…..
And self esteem
But the child in me keeps crying to be held
From a wound that longs for human love to heal
I can’t take this kind of mercy, so severe
Unless I feel you near

To see me grow
Let me know
All the pain will lead me to
Loving me, loving you
Feeling what is true
See me grow

I would laugh away the cold steel-trap of rage
Detach from memories of the victim I once played
Accept the absence of my home, my friends and years
Now disappeared
But the child in me keeps longing to be seen
Addicted to the dance, she bargains with her needs
I am lost within this wilderness of fear
Till I feel you near

To see me grow
Let me know
All the pain will lead me to
Loving me, loving you
Feeling what is true
See me grow

Bridge
I need your strong approval to pull me from the mire
I need you as a witness to watch me through the fire

Chorus
