My Child

  • Tore it up again, I couldn't stop again
    Letting go till there was nothing in the way
    Fuck the feeling then, I cave in again
    Sweet surrender to the angel I deny
    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?
    Another time I could stand up and be a man
    To change a face in my life
    (To change a face in my life)
    Your future and mine
    (Your future and mine)
    Time to do what is right
    (what is 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
    Would you redeem 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 that's inside
    The priest was horrified
    You struggled for the life
    That one desire was the dream I sought for yours
    Creeps cripple me, the reaper kidded me
    Left me early for the path I'd come to adore
    To change a face in my life
    Your future and mine
    Time to do what is right
    (what is 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
    Would you redeem 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
    Would you redeem my child?

    I pray you will redeem my child Writer/s: DAN DONEGAN, DAVID DRAIMAN, MICHAEL WENGREN, MIKE WENGREN
