In my mind I see you walking

In my mind I hear you talking

Learning every day to walk away from me

Never think that I don’t care

About those things we never share

You’re with me every moment, every minute, all the time


Chorus:

I don’t want to make a child of sorrow

And I hope that when tomorrow comes

And I’m not there she won’t despair

For I love her in so many ways

Even now I can’t erase the smile

Of the child of sorrow


Yesterday we walked together

Yesterday I wondered whether

I should sell my future just to be with you

Sitting here I feel lonely

Working seems to be the only way

To make the time go by


Chorus:


It’s getting hard to write about you

It’s getting hard to live without you

Someone said you were an angel in a play today

You are mine and part of me

Those are my eyes through which you see

You are my brain, my skin, my bones, my everything

And so I sing


Chorus:


Looking through the looking glass

Living with what’s come to pass

Self-inflicted wounds I find are slow to heal

As I play my last guitar

I still wonder where you are

I still feel the way I’ll always feel today

And so I say


Child of Sorrow
