Brad,
This is REALLY cool and as I listened I could see myself using it at school as part of an interactive lesson I prepared on the topic - part of a peer leadership/anti-bullying program the school does - BUT I came to the
verse...
"NOW SHE REMEMBERS
JUST WHAT LOVE AND FAITH CAN DO
BELIEVING THAT DREAMS COME TRUE
AND THANKING THE MAN UPSTAIRS"

and that blew up the idea as it bypassed the great development of the idea of a teacher helping, things improving through resilience as well as social skills development.
Up to that point I was hooked but bringing religion into it means I can't use it.

On a musical level I think this is pretty cool, classic developing narrative/time slip and some excellent images conjured.
Well done.

Apart from the sad story, it is a nice, strong performed song.
And I liked the nice way you made that break somewhere in the middle of the song.

Bye,
Hans Berkhout
