Oh Cinderella by lgs

Little sister when you coming home?
You’re looking tired, you look alone.
Your hiding place is hard and mean
so you scramble back to that ugly scene.

Generations burn in the dust.
No sin un-turned how could you have ever
trusted those empty eyes up in your face?
And your wanting heart falls out of place.

Oh Cinderella, clean the attic girl, clean the cellar.
Oh Cinderella, you were not meant to be
The girl you think you see.

This ain’t no fairy tale, not when you were small.
The love was weak, the order’s tall
And your momma sees not much at all!

Babies having babies now,
you loved him and took a vow.
No man could ever shine his light,
so you lay alone night after night

Keep it clean, the needles dirty,
the façade the scene, so not pretty
He’s breathing death, steady knocking,
holding down, lying and mocking.

Girl your love light’s dim,
but that does not matter to Him
When you coming home little sister?
When you coming home Cinderella?
When you coming home Sweet Marissa?

Dance, dance little sister,
dance around His tree of life.
When you coming home?
He is your Father, He wants to make it right.
