Mama Let Me Live


I know I am a mistake

I am the pain you cannot take

The reason your very heart breaks

I am the burden your sweet belly shakes

But to die before I smile

Is the greatest of my fears, mama

I wanna breathe some air

Even if for a while

You haven’t even seen me

You wanna tell me bye

Hear my cry

Mama let me live

I know it’s hard for you

But mama you can try

Feel my pain in these dark walls

Am lonely

And I don’t wanna die

Give me a chance, mama

Let me kick

I don’t want this to be the last I speak

Who will wipe me these tears?

Hold me so dear

Feel me some air

Show me love so sincere

Only you… can make me so cheer

Only you, mama

Can take me from here

Don’t let me go

Am from far, am so near

Mama please

I love you

Let me live…
