lyrics

We’ve been waiting for a you for a long, long time.
A smile like your father, eyes like mine.
Dreaming of tiny baby toes,
soft hair, soft skin,
the scent of new beginnings.

This is a promise to my son
I love you and I always will until my days are done
This is a promise to my son
I love you

No boy child can live, according to the king
How could such a tiny child do anything?
Prophesy filled his mind with fear
Too much, too late
he thinks it all is fated

This is a promise to my son
I love you and I always will until my days are done
This is a promise to my son
I love you

The midwife says she knows how to keep you safe,
She says it’s easier if I don’t see your face.
My deepest fear is you will hate me for this,
but if you live to hate me,
That will mean you are alive

This is a promise to my son
I love you and I always will until my days are done
This is a promise to my son
I love you, I love you, I love you

I love you, I love you, I love you (repeat to end)

It’s time.
