  • Oh my friend
    You have carried me but you've left me again
    In my time of need
    When everyone is moving but me
    Heaven knows this is real

    So lift me up, raise my head high
    And take my photograph
    And keep it 'til I'm old enough to know
    That I was lovely, and I was truthful
    If only I could have seen it
    If only I could have believed it
    Oh, this could be my second chance
    And this could be my second chance

    Morning came
    And it left me with a bitter taste
    Of a mould I don't fit
    But with many others we commit
    Heaven knows this is real

    So lift me up, raise my head high
    And take my photograph
    And keep it 'til I'm old enough to know
    That I was lovely, and I was truthful
    If only I could have seen it
    If only I could have believed it
    Oh, this could be my second chance

    And I feel like this is the first day
    Of a brand new life in which I'm thirsty for
    An honest life where I can love myself
    For who I am, who I am

    Take my photograph
    And keep it 'til I'm old enough to know
    That I was lovely, and I was truthful

    So lift me up, raise my head high
    And take my photograph
    And keep it 'til I'm old enough to know
    That I was lovely, and I was truthful
    If only I could have seen it
    If only I could have believed it
    Oh, this could be my second chance Writer/s: Lucy Rose Parton
