A hospital bed A room filled with flowers Every monitor beep keeps the time As I count down the hours The petals they weep They're uprooted like me Cut from the cord of their mother Who created everything
If You won't save her Please just take her away
She pulls me close Says that she loves me That she wishes to still be around On the day that I marry Tightly she holds But the plan still unfolds Cutting the cord from the mother Who gave me everything
If You won't save her Please just take her Nothing breaks her away From the promise of a better day
This is your moment of glory Hallelujah
It may feel like God went north And left you to be But all you need to know Is you have everything you need It's just a blink of an eye Until the next time we meet I'll hold you 'til the end I'll hold you 'til you're free
If You won't save her Please just take her Nothing breaks her away Because she'll keep holding on
The lyrics for Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" were based on actual events relating to his daughter Judy's sweet 16 party. The teenager threw a tantrum and burst into tears when her mum and dad insisted that her grandparents had to be invited.
