A child with a wounded knee
Cries out "Take a look at me"
The tears stream her face
Cause she fell right out of the race
She asks "Can you fix it for me?"
I couldn't save her pride
She asks "Can you finish for me?"
But I knew it just wouldn't be right

I told you once, I told you twice
I didn't really think I gave her bad advice
But now as I turn around I start to see
They didn't mean it for me

I jump back to a time I can hardly see
There I see a little girl the age of three
Her daddy standing on the corner giving her a sign
But he just never really seemed to have the time

He said " I told you once, I told you twice"
I didn't really think he gave me bad advice
But now as I turn around I start to see
He didn't mean it for me

A girl sits with her child
She can't even let out a smile
The tears stream down her face
Cause she pulled herself out of the race
She asks "How can this happen to me?"
I couldn't look her in the eye
She asks "Can you take her for me?"
But I knew it just wouldn't be right

I said "I told you once, I told you twice"
I didn't really think I gave her bad advice
But now as I turn around I finally see
They didn't mean it for me
