I grew up in your house.
I grew up with your rules and I know sex is what I shouldn't do.
I know what i can't tell you.

baby's gone away.
baby won't be back.
baby grew today and she won't ever be back.

maybe you loved me;
maybe you didn't I don't know.
it doesn't matter now because when I needed help I was all alone.

now baby's gone away.
sometimes condoms break.
your baby grew today, and she won't ever be back.

I'd be a little girl forever.
I won't make you ashamed.
little girl's gone away because I died on a knitting needle yesterday.

baby's gone away.
baby won't be back.
baby grew today.
I did what you told me to do- now I'm dead.
goodbye. goodbye.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite H2B songs! Musically I love the way it is guitar/ bass/and vocals (no drums). I think the first part is talking about the expectation of young girls to not be sexually active, the second part about the girl getting pregnant and the boy not helping her, and lastly the girl going to get an abortion to please her parents or whoever.
