  • [Verse]
    Didn't I lace her shoes
    Just the same as you?
    And ain't that my blood in her veins?
    Didn't I love her?
    Didn't I hold her?
    Ain't that my blue in her eyes?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    She don't need another heartbreak
    Don't make it 'bout me
    No mother should ever let her child bear the hate that she feels

    [Chorus]
    Please (please)
    Please (please)
    Please, don't take her from me

    [Verse]
    I don't wanna see her grow
    Just to be like you
    I can't stand your smile on her face
    I didn't ask for nothing
    I never wanted war
    You still have a gun to my head

    [Pre-Chorus]
    She don't need another heartbreak
    Don't make it 'bout me
    No mother should ever let her child bear the hate that she feels

    [Chorus]
    Please (please)
    Please (please)
    Please, don't take her from me

    [Chorus]
    Please (please)
    Please (please)
    Please, don't take her from me

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Didn't I lace her shoes
    Just the same as you?
    And ain't that my blood in her veins?
    Didn't I love her?
    Didn't I hold her?
    Ain't that my blue in her eyes?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    She don't need another heartbreak
    Don't make it 'bout me
    No mother should ever let her child bear the hate that she feels

    [Pre-Chorus]
    She don't need another heartbreak
    Don't make it 'bout me
    No mother should ever let her child bear the hate that she feels

    [Outro]
    No mother should
    No mother should
    Don't take her from me

    [Segue into Guilty]
    Mmm...
    Mmm...
    Mmm...
    Mmm...
