The fear of a daughter can run high
For something is growing inside

Many times to herself she had prayed
Than the big boy who stole her away
And sometimes it takes a grown man a long time to learn

If the baby is just someone else to take sides in a fight
The distance is greater each day
And she knits her life away
A long time ago she saw visions on the stairs
The home help is no help at all I have not committed a crime
Is there a God, Is there a next time
