Ever since you’ve been a child
You took upon yourself
To try and make it easy
For everybody else

Kept your grandma company
Your angry mother too
Never letting off your guard
Afraid of what she’ll do

Your father, though a scholar man
Was never strong enough
You bit your lips and took it hard
The beating made you tough

But ever so slow
I watched your spirit grow
From the wonder child, the prodigy
To the woman that I know

Your journey was long
And no one came along
But now I’m here, so take me in
I’m knocking at your door

Won’t you open up
I’m coming in alone
Don’t you realize
Its time for you to go

You took a husband, you married young
You ran away from home
You a child, he made you cry
Then your daughter came along

Another child, a bigger house
But darling, where were you?
Never asking to be loved
As if you didn’t knew ...

What it meant to be kissed
What’s the smell of love
You thought your life was set in stone
As if sent from above

But ever so slow
I watched your spirit grow
From the wonder child, the prodigy
To the woman that I know

Your journey was long
And no one came along
But now I’m here, so take me in
I’m knocking at your door

Won’t you open up
I’m coming in alone
Don’t you realize
Its time for you to go
