Baby Boy

Take my heart, tear it apart.

Take my life; stab me with a knife.

Let me fall, watch me crawl.

Hear me cry, I can’t wait to die.

See my wings broken by the words you have spoken.

I see inside your soul now all I see is one big hole.

Your cold still I seem to hold.

Hear me scream watch the tears stream.

See my body on the floor try to run through that door.

See my broken body fly I’ll see you in the endless sky.

See blood I have bled you can’t seem to believe I’m dead.

Hold my hand, perhaps I’ll help you stand.

See the knife, baby boy you took my life
