"Lullaby in Blue" as written by Adam Cohen and Brock Patrick Walsh....
I know that I'm no saint.
My head is in the clouds.
They called you a mistake,
But I still, I still say your name out loud.

They called me a stupid girl,
Just like my mom.
Too many men passed through my arms.
At seventeen I looked into your eyes,
Knew I could never comfort your cries.
Every April still reminds me of you.
The child I never knew.
My lullaby in blue.

It all goes by so fast.
How lovely you must be.
Why you've reached the age at last
That I was when your daddy lived with me.

How I wish we could meet somewhere,
Talk it through.
There is so much I would say to you.
There are others, I'm not alone.
A younger brother you've never known,
And a baby girl who so reminds me of you.
The child I never knew.
My lullaby in blue.

As the years go by,
Try not to think of us sadly.
Believe it if you can,
I want to see you so badly.
On your birthday, Mama's thinking of you.
The child I never knew.
My lullaby in blue.
My lullaby in blue.
My lullaby

    Song MeaningOf course this song is about a mother who had to give up her child for adoption at the young age of 17. However, she has never forgotten her first daughter, and reflects back years later wondering what happened to her, and has so much to tell her, like she has a younger brother, and a new baby sister who reminder her mother so much of the daughter she had to give up.
    It is a sad yet beautiful song.
