Marvin Gaye - Stand By Me

My little girl met a new friend

Just the other day

On the playground at school

Between the tires and the swings

But she came home with tear-filled eyes

And she said to me "Daddy, Alyssa Lies"

I just brushed it off at first

Cause I didn't know how much my little girl had been hurt

Or the things she had seen

I wasn't ready when I said you can tell me

And she said

[Chorus]

Alyssa Lies

To the classroom

Alyssa lies

Everyday at school

Alyssa lies

To the teacher

As she tries to cover every bruise

My little girl laid her head down

That night to go to sleep

As I stepped out the room I heard her say

A prayer so soft and sweet

God bless my mom and my dad

And my new friend Alyssa

I know she needs it bad

[Chorus]

I had the worst night of sleep in years

As I tried to think of a way to calm her fears

I knew just what it was I had to do

But when we got to school on Monday I heard the news

My little girl asked me why everybody looked so sad

The lump in my throat grew bigger

With every question that she asked

Until I felt the tears run down my face

And I told her that Alyssa wouldn't be at school today

She doesn't lie

In the classroom

She doesn't lie

Anymore at school

Alyssa lies

With Jesus

Because there's nothing anyone would do

[Chorus]
