about

I worked with kids living in a group home setting. I saw them come and go, living out of garbage bags. I had a limited role but wanted so much for them. I tried to show them love even if it was just an epic Sunday breakfast made with love. This is song is about the promise of these darlings and the incredible odds they are up against. They are my children from another mother.

lyrics

Nobody asked you
Garbage bags and tissue
Were all you had
Daydreaming of leaving

Trying to be friendly
But I'm one of the many
Who's promised
This is could be different

I want to be in your forever
My child from another mother
I love her

I make you breakfast
Your small angry balled fist
Showed me this won't be easy

Paper cups and plastic knives
Chaos and told to thrive through this
Is it living?

I want to be in your forever
My child from another mother
I love her

How do you warm the cold
When you're feeling bought and sold
You won't try to bend or fold
Let the bread mold
With only eyes for gold

I want to be in your forever
My child from another mother
I love her.
