Lyrics
God Save The Child
God save the child
Lost in the sea
God save the child
God save the child

You didn't even say goodbye
When you left me
Bye bye bye for now
An empty bed was all I heard
After hanging on your every word
For so long
Been so long

God save the child
God save the child

I met you at a party one time
Said your name didn't go with your eyes
Wasn't that a laugh?
I thought that maybe we could make it
'Cause into every rain a little life must fall
Life must fall

God save the child
God save the child

Your smile said that you'd overheard
All the elephants' last words
That I never heard
And when you told me some
And I wrote this song
I knew it couldn't last for long
Life must fall

God save the child
God save the child

As I begin to begin again
The sky's not even sympathetic
Enough to cry
I sit here crying, so bewildered
Don't you know you're lost without me
Please come back I need you

God save the child
God save the child
