  • Congratulations, it's a boy
    Buried underneath the afterbirth of joy
    Sticks and stones will always break
    His bones can barely take the weight
    Of your breath breathing down his neck again

    Keep it to yourself
    'Cause you don't need to ask
    Everything was golden
    Memories will last

    Your family; a little girl
    One little wonder with your back against the wall
    Kisses at bedtime never meant
    A life that came to represent
    Failings that she could not forget again

    Keep it to yourself
    'Cause you don't need to ask
    Everything was golden
    Memories will last

    She could not forget
    Breathing down his neck
    She could not forget

    Well the price you pay is never worth
    The pain to suffer the abuse
    Lay down and sleep with all the ghosts
    Again, again, again, again
    Lay down and sleep with all the ghosts
    Again, again, again, again
    Lay down and sleep with all the ghosts
    Again, again, again, again Writer/s: DARRAN SMITH, GARETH DAVIES, KRIS ROBERTS, MATTHEW DAVIES, RYAN RICHARDS
