[Unique (with New Directions Girls):]
Tenement slum
(Ooh, ahhh)

[Unique (New Directions Girls):]
You think that I don't feel love (I'll always love you)
But what I feel for you is real love
In other's eyes I see reflected (I'll always love you)
A hurt, scorned, rejected (Love you)

[Unique with New Directions Girls:]
Love child, never meant to be
Love child, born in poverty
Love child, never meant to be
Love child, take a look at me

[Unique (New Directions Girls):]
I started my life in an old
Cold run down tenement slum (Tenement slum)
My father left, he never even married mom (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
I shared the guilt my mama knew
So afraid that others knew I had no name (Ooh, ahh)

This love we're contemplatin' (I'll always love you)
Is worth the pain of waitin'
We'll only end up hatin' (I'll always love you)
The child we may be creatin' (Love you)

[Unique with New Directions Girls (New Directions Girls):]
Love child, never meant to be
Love child, (scorned by) society
Love child, always second best
Love child, (different from) different from the rest

[New Directions (Unique):]
Hold on, hold on, just a little bit longer
(Mmm, baby)
Hold on, hold on, just a little bit longer
(Mmm, baby)

[Unique (New Directions Girls):]
I started school, in a worn, torn
Dress that somebody threw out (Somebody threw out)
I knew the way it felt to always live in doubt (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
To be without the simple things
So afraid my friends would see the guilt in me (Ooh, ahh)

Don't think that I don't need you (I'll always love you)
Don't think I don't wanna please you
No child of mine'll be bearing (I'll always love you)
The name of shame I've been wearing (Love you)

[Unique (New Directions):]
([with New Directions:] Love child), Love child
Never quite as good
Afraid, ashamed
(Hold on) Misunderstood

(Just a little bit longer, love child) But I'll always love you
(Hold on) Always love you
(Just a little bit longer, love child) I'll always love you
(Hold on) Always love you

(Just a little bit longer, love child) Love child, ooh
(Hold on) Hold on
(Just a little bit longer) Just a little bit longer
(Love child) Love child, wait
(Just a little bit longer) Just a little bit longer
(Hold on) Hold on

(Just a little bit longer, love child) Hey, hey
Oh baby
I'll always love you
(Hold on) I'll always, I'll always
(Just a little bit longer) I'll always love you

[Unique with New Directions:]
Love child
