DESMOND CHILD


The Gift Of Life Lyrics

We were young
We were restless
We were reaching for the stars
We had passion and we burned down the nights.

Just a high school
Prince and princess
We'd build castles in the sky
When you're so much in love there is no wrong or right.

We weren't ready
For a child in our lives
We weren't ready then,
We were children ourselves.
But it still hurts inside.

I hope you're still up in heaven
'Cause I need you now.
I hope your still in labor
And can hear my prayers somehow.
So that when I'm older
There will be no doubts
I hope you're still up in heaven
'Cause I need you now.

You'd be 16 now and counting
You'd have lovers of your own
And I'd be staying up
Just for you to come home.

When the gift of life is taken
Can it ever be returned?
Or are you waiting in
The wings of my soul?

Oh, we weren't ready
For a child in our lives.
We weren't ready then,
We were children ourselves,
But I know our choice was right.

I hope you're still up in heaven
'Cause I need you now.
I hope your still in labor
And can hear my prayers somehow.
So that when I'm older
There will be no doubts
I hope you're still up in heaven
'Cause I need you now.

You've got to make your choices
It's got to be your choice
It's a life
It's the gift of life (It's the gift of life)

You've got to make your choices
Some of them will hurt
But you know it's right inside
That's the gift of life.

Well now I'm ready
I need someone to hold
My hands are empty
And I'm reaching for you
When I'm all alone.

I hope you're still up in heaven
'Cause I need you now.
I hope your still in labor
And can hear my prayers somehow.
So that when I'm older
There will be no doubts
I hope you're still up in heaven
'Cause I need you now.
I hope you're still up in heaven
'Cause I need you now.
The gift of life is precious
I wanna give it back somehow.

You've got to make your choices
It's got to be your choice
It's a life
It's the gift of life (It's the gift of life)

You've got to make your choices
Some of them will hurt
But you know it's right inside
That's the gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life.
The gift of life... (fade)
