Written for Spintunes 1, Round 3: Write a song about birth.... that is a tear-jerker.

lyrics

you take a first breath
i think my heart skipped a beat in my chest
and i can’t breathe, don’t want to believe
this is as good as it’s gonna get

lean down to kiss your forehead
I can feel your beating heart
bad things happen to everyone
and you’re getting a head start

I was ready to go, you caught me at a bad time
can’t help but feel somebody’s taking what is mine

please take care of her for me
and please, take care

your mother’s smiling
and I’ll try not to see the tears
in the dimming flourescent light
i can’t feel a drop of fear

i can’t quite find my voice
when she whispers she can’t lose me
but my dear, no daughter’s raised
on photos and home movies

when she murmurs our names i can barely turn my head
we started this together now i’m dying to know what’s next

please take care of her for me
and please, take care
please take care of her for me
cause I won’t be there
cause I won’t be there

the last nine months i’ve wanted nothing more:
to shake hands with an angel in a revolving door
i’m glad i got a chance to see her before
time goes so fast, could I have a bit more?
the last nine months i’ve wanted nothing more:
to shake hands with an angel in a revolving door
i’m glad i got a chance to see her before
time goes so fast, could I have a bit more?

time goes so fast….
could I have a bit more?
time goes so fast…..
could I have a bit more?

please take care of her for me
and please, take care
please take care of her for me
cause I won’t be there.
cause I won’t be there.
so please, please take care
cause I won’t be there
