Maria Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

Maria, she's too young to understand
But old enough to feel the pain
Of living where no love can grow
With no hope for change

Maria, her world is an angry place
But she makes sure that scars don't show
And with every hurt
Her tender heart is growing cold

Who, who's gonna love Maria
Who, who's gonna touch her
With the tenderness she longs for
Like a desert longs for rain

She's got a hunger deep inside
With every tear she cries
She wonders if there's
Someone out there, somewhere
Who's gonna love Maria

She looks in the mirror now
And the little girl is gone
But still the search for
Someone's love goes on and on for Maria

But does anybody care
Or even notice her at all
Is anyone listening close enough
To hear her call

And who, who's gonna love Maria
Who, who's gonna touch her
With the tenderness she longs for
Like a desert longs for rain

She's got a hunger deep inside
And with every tear she cries
She wonders if there's someone out there

Maria if you can hear me
Please know that you're not forgotten
Somebody's trying to get to you

Who's gonna love Maria
Who, who's gonna touch her
With the tenderness she longs for
Like a desert longs for rain

She's got a hunger deep inside
And with every tear she cries
She wonders if there's
Someone out there, somewhere
Who's gonna love Maria

Maria there's someone out there
Who's gonna love Maria
And who's gonna take her time to hear her calling
And wipe away the tears that falling for Maria
Who's gonna love Maria
