My little one, I’ve had to send you away
To the nursery while I work 14 hours a day
In the crime class, washing in the freezing cold
Day after day

My crime in the eyes of the law
Was to lie in the bed of the man I adored
Well atleast you were made from love
Not like so many poor girls here
Please stay strong without your mother’s touch
If I could i’d break every wall between you and I
But I can’t let them drive me mad
Cause now I have you to live for
Everything’s changed, thank god it’s not like before
When all hope was gone
My little one, atleast for now you’re near me
I’m 2 yards away, can you feel my heart it beats for you
In 5 years I’ll come and get you
And we’ll start a new life
To the orphanage you will go when you turn 3
Where you’ll still have to wait for me
But with each breath we breathe
We survive a little more
Please stay strong without your mother’s touch
If I could I’d break every wall between you and I
But I can’t let them drive me mad
Cause now I have you two to live for
Everything’s changed, thank God it’s not like before
When I couldn’t see a future for me
My little one if all goes well
On sundays for a short while I can hold you
But between these times I’ll just count the steps
Til I see your face
Please stay strong without your mother’s touch
If I could I’d break every wall between you and I
But I can’t let them drive me mad
Cause now I have you to live for
Everything’s changed, thank God it’s not like before
When all hope was lost

Little one, your mother love’s you, little one
Little one, your mother love’s you, little one
