Stillborn Still Love You Baby Please Cry
Baby, I want you please know I lied.
Baby oh baby, please won't you cry?
I said I didn't want you, but I do.
I just couldn't stand the pain as you were leaving my womb.
Baby, I love you.
Baby, I miss you.
Baby, I think about about you and my heart breaks again.
Baby, I named you.
Baby, you don't know what I'd do.
Just to hold you in my arms again.
Baby, I gave you our family name.
Baby, there were no flowers upon your grave.
I stared for hours
As they died in the hospital room that fateful day.
Baby, I know you were too tiny to live.
Baby, my arms ache.
Oh what I'd give to fill them.
Or how much I'd be loving you if you lived.
Baby, it's cold outside.
Baby, I have a blanket they wrapped you in.
I have your footprints in ink.
Baby, the memories of that day.
The pain inside wants them to go away.
Baby I wonder what it would be like to kiss your cheek.
To hug you and love you and bathe you in the sink.
Baby, my stillborn, I still love you. Baby please cry!
