Oh poor baby, why so sad,
I look in your eyes, and the world has taken your joy
Oh poor baby why are you upset,
I look at your face, and there’s no one there
Oh poor girl, why are you in pain,
I search your smile, and I see a ghost in its place
Oh boy boy boy, oh boy, why do you hide,
I see your profile, bravado and yet you are a shadow
Oh poor darling, why do you despair
I think I see you, but the you I see belongs to a past life
Mother, mother, mother, can anything else be a bother,
When life has been lived and death is nigh
is there a life you wished you had lived altogether.
Oh father, that at the end of the road you realized
that the journey had really just begun.
Ooooooh child, things are gonna get easier
Oh child of the world, be yourself your world
The great one lives in you, and it’s in Him that you will rest.
