About the song
I pray the young woman who inspired this song and all victims still trapped in the web of shame, lies, pain, and abuse hear my song and find FREEDOM and the COURAGE to TELL!
If Her Tears Were Stars
© Colleen Laylon, BMI, 2013

She talks to pooh bear late at night
hugs him tight, as she cries
Leaves on her bedroom light
crawls under the bed an prays...
He'll leave her alone this time
foot steps take her breath away....

If Her Tears Were STARS....
she'd hitch a ride to heaven or even Mars
If Her Tears Were STARS....
they'd light a path to her back yard
Expose the dirty secrets and the hidden scars
If... Her... TEARS.... Were STARS....
If Her Tears Were Stars

Eight candles on her birthday cake
closes her eyes, an blows out the flames
Wishes she could fly away
find courage to run and tell
She'd rather die than drag his chain
stay trapped inside a broken shell

Repeat Chorus

If you're listenin' Girl.... you gotta TRY...
tell on the monster and all a his Lies.....

Repeat Chorus

If Her Tears Were Stars
