Pray God you can cope
I stand outside
This woman's work
This woman's world
Oh it's hard on the man
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the father

I know you've got a little life in you left
I know you've got a lotta strength left
I know you've got a little life in you left
I know you've got a lotta strength left
I should be cryin' but I just can't let it show
I should be hopin' but I can't stop thinkin'
All the things we should've said that are never said
All the things we should've done that we never did
All the things we should've given, but I didn't
Oh darlin', make it go
Make it go away

Give me these moments
Give them back to me
Give me your little kiss
Give me your...

I know you've got a little life in you left
Give me your hand baby
I know you've got a lotta strength
Give me your pretty hand
I know you've got a little life in you left
For...
I know you've got a lotta strength left
Your lovechild
I know you've got a little life in you left
Whatever you need
I know you've got a lotta strength left
Give me your hand
I know you've got a little life in you left
Give me your love
I know you've got a lotta strength left

I should be cryin' but I just can't let it show baby
I should be hopin' but I can't stop thinkin
All the things we should've said that we never said
All the things we should've done that we never do
All the things that you wanted from me
All the things that you needed from me
All the things we should've given, but I didn't
Oh darlin', make it go away now.
Just make it go away.

    Song MeaningFirst of all, this song is not by Maxwell. It's by Kate Bush.

    The meaning of the song can be found by looking at the video Kate did for this song. As you will see, it is about a man coping with the pain of having a seriously ill wife. So seriously ill that she may die. Looking back on all the things he should have said and should have done is painful. Especially now. Watch Kate Bush's video. The meaning is there.
