hell is for children lyrics – pat benatar

they cry in the dark, so you can’t see their tears
they hide in the light, so you can’t see their fears
forgive and forget, all the while
love and pain become one and the same
in the eyes of a wounded child

because h*ll, h*ll is for children
and you know that their little lives can become such a mess
h*ll, h*ll is for children
and you shouldn’t have to pay for your love
with your bones and your flesh

it’s all so confusing, this brutal abusing
they blacken your eyes, and then apologize
be daddy’s good girl, and don’t tell mommy a thing
be a good little boy, and you’ll get a new toy
tell grandma you fell off the swing

because h*ll, h*ll is for children
and you know that their little lives can become such a mess
h*ll, h*ll is for children
and you shouldn’t have to pay for your love
with your bones and your flesh
no, h*ll is for children

h*ll, h*ll is for h*ll
h*ll is for h*ll, h*ll is for children

h*ll, h*ll is for h*ll
h*ll is for h*ll, h*ll is for children

h*ll, h*ll is for h*ll
h*ll is for h*ll, h*ll is for children

h*ll is for children
h*ll is for children
