My Name

Album: One Good Friend (2004)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about a baby inside the mother's womb. The baby is expressing his/her only emotion - love - and what it feels like to be on the inside. Then the baby talks about being born and how he/she takes God's hand and leaves for heaven. The baby knows his/her parents love the baby just the same even though they had never and may never meet. Basically, it's about parents who experience a miscarriage or a still birth. >>
