DIANA ROSS


Love Child Lyrics

You think that I don’t feel love
But what I feel for you is real love
In others’ eyes I see reflected
A hurt, scorned, rejected

Love child, never meant to be
Love child, born in poverty
Love child, never meant to be
Love child, take a look at me

Started my life
In an old, cold, run-down terrace line
My father left, he never even married Mom
I shared the guilt my Momma knew
So afraid that others knew I had no name

Oh, this love we’re contemplating
Is worth the pain of waiting
We’ll only end up hating
The child we may be creating

Love child, never meant to be
Love child, scorned by society
Love child, always second best
Love child, different from the rest

Mmm, baby
Mmm, baby

I started school
In a worn, torn dress that somebody threw out
I knew the way it felt to always live in doubt
To be without the simple things
So afraid my friends would see the guilt in me

Oh, don’t think that I don’t need you
Don’t think I don’t wanna please you
But no child of mine will be bearing
The name of shame I’ve been wearing

Love child, love child, never quite as good
Afraid, ashamed, misunderstood
But I’ll always love you
I’ll always love you, I’ll always love you
I’ll always love you, I’ll always love you
I’ll always love you, you, you
I’ll always love you
