Tells a story of a young 9-year-old boy being awoken by his Father physically abusing his Mother after yet another weekend house party with friends and family. He lays there in tears as he hears his Mother crying from the abuse. He loves her but can’t protect her, as he’s only nine. It is a powerful and moving song. Little did I know when I released it the impact it would have around the world with listeners. I’ve received personal messages and emails from people expressing their own stories and from those who thanked me for writing such a song to bring awareness to those who have or currently face such abuse. From France, Ireland, Scotland, Norway, England, including both in the United States and Canada, I am truly overwhelmed by the response.
