"What About the Children?" as written by and Benjamin Winans....
They say a man can be the coldest coldest
Thing on earth
But nothing hurts like a woman
With dreams that don't involve you

What happened to all my dreams
You just trade them in for material things
Just because your friends said you deserve
Your own
How could you let them break up our happy home
Bags are packed and you're on your way
This has got to be the saddest day
Can I change your mind girl I'm hurting inside
Can I change your mind don't think I'll survive
Without you baby

What about how I feel
What about me
What about all our plans
I guess you don't give a damn
What about me
What about me

You say you still love him but you gotta go
If this is what love is I don't want no more
I'm begging you to change your mind
Or do you get a thrill out of a grown man crying
I never thought I'd see the day when you up and go

We laid up in the bed remember the things we said
We'd be together until we're dead
You let your friends get into your head
It's never too late to turn things around
You said love was true and you'd always be down
