Verse 1:

I'll say my prayers tonight
Maybe there won't be another fight
I know you're a busy man
Watching over all you can
My momma said you've got good ears
Can hear the tiniest drops of tears

Chorus:

Dear jesus
Maybe you can make things right
If i write you a letter; send it to heaven
Daddy came home drunk again tonight
A little past eleven
It's same thing he does almost every night
Did you hear us cry up in heaven?

Verse 2:

Like momma i try to be brave and strong
Not make daddy mad and do anything wrong
My daddy beats on our mother
I'm so scared for her, my sisters and baby brother
I'm just little girl, not a man
I try to take the hits for her when i can

Chorus:

Dear jesus
Maybe you can make things right
If i write you a letter; send it to heaven
Daddy came home drunk again tonight
A little past eleven
It's same thing he does almost every night
Did you hear us cry…

Verse 3:

Dear jesus, i said my prayers before i went to bed
Hoping you heard like momma said
I try be good, obey and not sin
I'm sorry i didn't hear daddy come in
He must of lost another bar room fight
So he beat on momma tonight

Bridge:

Momma don't cry no more
I'm going go mail my letter to heaven's door
I sealed it with all our hopes and prayers
And the tiniest drop of baby's tears

Chorus:

Dear jesus
Maybe you can make things right
If i write you a letter; send it to heaven
Daddy came home drunk again tonight
A little past eleven
It's same thing he does almost every night
Did you hear us cry…

Verse 4:

Dear jesus, momma you're black and blue
Your eye is swollen and your lip too
I tried to get to you make him quit
Always the same excuse - you made him do it
Daddy don't know how to love
Always got to hit and shove

Oh, dear jesus…
