Here are the lyrics to a song that I’m working on.  It’s called “Traffic” and is about human trafficking.  The 2 verses are from the perspective of someone being trafficked.  How, most of the time, someone gets lured into the situation.  Then the choruses are God’s promise to be a rescuer.  Then the tag is from God’s perspective to the trafficking victim.  I’ll post up some audio in a few days.  Here are the lyrics:

VERSE 1

It went from “I love you” to “he loves you too”

It went from “I’m sorry” to I’m black and blue

It went from “just one more time” to maybe two

And now, now there’s no doubt

And now, now there’s no way out

CHORUS

For the battered and the broken

For the desperate and the done

For the poor and for the prisoner

For your rescue He has come

For the labored and lamenting

For the naked and the numb

For the vanished and the victim

For your rescue He has come

He has come; He has come

VERSE 2

It went from “I’m past due” to I’m on the street

It went from the car note to the car backseat

It went from “I’ll never” to a nightly need

And now, now there’s no doubt

And now, now there’s no way out
