Sweet Little Sister Lyrics

A New Rock Musical
Lizzie Borden the Musical - Sweet Little Sister Lyrics

Emma: I was a trembling child, just twelve years old,
When Mother placed you in my arms.
You were only two, you never knew, my sweet, little sister.
She touched my face and she pulled me close.
Then Mama whispered in my ear,
"Don't let her go, don't let her know, your sweet, little sister."
For years I tried to be to you all the things she was to me.
I tried to give you all the love you needed.
But now I feel, with out a word, I've told you everything.
And now I hear a warning, and it must be heeded.
Sweet, little sister, I'm so afraid to leave you.
Sweet, little sister, I've got to get away.
I was a dark sought girl of 14 years,
When Father married his new wife.
You were only four, so I kept score my sweet little sister.
She touched his face and pulled him close.
Lizzie, overlapping: Huh-huh-huh
Emma: And then she whispered in his ear,
Lizzie, overlapping: Huh-huh-huh
Both: He let us go, she runs the show, my sweet little sister.
Lizzie: For years I tried to keep you safe from the darkness in my heart.
But now I see my troubles were detected.
Emma: I look into your cold, green eyes and they tell me everything.
Now I know that no one's been protected.
Sweet, little sister. What I don't see.
Lizzie: What you don't see.
Emma: Sweet, little sister, I could never hurt you.
Lizzie: No never hurt you.
Sweet sister, what you don't know.
Emma: What I don't know.
Sweet, little sister, I can never show.
Sweet, little sister, I'm so afraid to leave you.
Sweet, little sister, I'm more afraid to stay.
Sweet, little sister, I'm scared of what may happen.
Sweet, little sister, I've got to get away.
I've got to get away.
I've got to get away.
