It is dedicated to my son You know how much I love you and you will always be in my heart. I will be there forever


I'd like to know what I gotta do to make this come true so close to you
I'd like to know how many tears I need to cry to make you know how much I love you.

I would speak and sing and talk and express and write and read to know you
I'd walk and run and fly and swim and float and dig to understand you
I'd lie and be real for you.

This is my lovely child, this is my sweet son
He is my moon and my shining sun
It is my dream or my utopia
This is my heart broken
It's my idea

I'd paint the sky with the colours you need to see it is not so far and high...

we would play and run and listen and dance and be sad and happy each day
We'd be insane and brave and afraid and lovely and ruthless to walk away
We'd be lonely and safe what we'd say...

I'd break the rules to change the world where you'll never see any tear.

We would fight and be peace and come and go and fall and get up so deep inside
We'd hide and reveal and dream and wake up and love and hate what we've denied
We'd swallow the tears we haven't cried...
