Lyrics:

in the winter things are changing and the stories do unfold
there's a new world that surrounds us with still glimpses of the old
is it safe to be a young girl any more now than before
does the speaking help the chances of the one in every four

we shared stories in the cafe of families and dreams
of living thru the changes a woman's life has seen
we mumbled of relationships and distancing farewells
we stumbled onto grief and then she tells

tell me what did you do with her childhood years where did they go
and tell me how did you feel when you took hold of her
'cause I weep and I feel cold
'cause I weep and I feel cold

well did you think that you could do this and never know reproach
have you put away the memory and denied her any hope
of naming you and questioning the taking of her youth
and are you terrified of when she speaks the truth

tell me what did you do with her childhood years where did they go
and tell me how did you feel when you took hold of her
'cause I weep and I feel cold
'cause I weep and I feel cold
