Song lyrics
Lately I've been winning battles left and right
But even winners can get wounded in the fight
People say that I'm amazing
Strong beyond my years
But they don't see inside of me
I'm hiding all the tears

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
'Cause deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

Unafraid because His armor is the best
But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest
People say that I'm amazing
Never face retreat
But they don't see the enemies
That lay me at His feet

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and and cry for just a while
'Cause deep inside this armor
the warrior is a child

They don't know that I go running home when I fall down
They don't know who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and look up for a smile
'Cause deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
The Warrior is a Child

I have found this to be one of those songs that (while sounding awesome by Twila Paris) can be very moving when sung by a man who would otherwise be thought of as strong in appearance and unwavering in his resolve. Specifically, when a manly men (tuff guy types, men of courage with integrity, resolve, internal fortitude etc.) show they are totally yielded and vulnerable before our Lord, people tend to pay attention. IMO

I agree Hecarriesme, this is such and amazing song. It really captures the heart of every christian. We're in a battle against a foe that we have no chance of beating, looking strong and brave. But little does that monster know, that when times get bad, we run to our father in heaven, and cry. It's so amazing!

This is a great song that I have always loved, because it fits me so incredibly well! As a black belt in karate, sometimes thought of as one of the best, most people think of me as just the "tough girl" since I hit hard and have sharp, crisp, painful techniques I love to use. But they don't often see my tears. They don't have a clue the torment I feel at times in my heart, the sorrow I face. I keep that hidden because at karate I'm supposed to be this "strong" person and such. Ever since I heard this song three years ago, I have ascribed the song to myself because it fits me exactly.
