My Child

作詞:    作曲:

Tore it up again, I couldn't stop again
Let it go till there was nothing in the way
Fought the feeling then, I gave in again
Sweet surrender to an angel I denied

When you came to life I was terrified
I knew that nothing else would ever feel the same
Doubt came over me, what kind of father would I be?
I knew the time had come to stand up and be a man

To change the face of my life, your future in mind
Time to do what was right, a new beginning

The world around me died when I saw that heartbeat
I knew it wasn't a sin
Can someone tell me why this has happened to me?
Why was it only in death, were you redeemed, my child?

No serenity within agony
Every day brings on a hundred ways to fight
Constant scrutiny, I can feel you judging me
Resurrecting every demon left inside

Her face was horrified, you struggled still alive
My only desire was to trade my soul for yours
Grief crippled me, the reaper cheated me
Left me yearning for the path I'd come to adore

To change the face of my life, your future in mind
Time to do what was right, a new beginning

The world around me died when I saw that heartbeat
I knew it wasn't a sin
Can someone tell me why this has happened to me?
Why was it only in death, were you redeemed, my child?

My child, the world around me died when I saw that heartbeat
I knew it wasn't a sin
Can someone tell me why this has happened to me?
Why was it only in death, were you redeemed, my child?

I pray, you were redeemed, my child
