Babe - Poem by Lucy Vernezze

Don't fall down and cry now, baby
Stand up and Stand tall
Don't be afraid of defeat now, baby
You'll never lose it all
As long as I’m breathing
I'll be by your side
You can always run to me
If you've got nowhere to hide

The shadows may follow you now, baby
But they'll never win
Don't ever let them get to you, baby
Trust comes from within'
The voices echo everywhere
But they can't deny their sin
The shadows may follow you now, baby
But they'll never win

There may be times you'll ask yourself, baby
Where do I go from here?
And your blinded by the darkness, baby
And all you feel is fear
If I’m not around then baby
I'll be looking down on you
Your guardian angel will guide you, baby
And help you make it through

I will always love you, baby
Even though you not yet born
My love for you is so strong, baby
You'll never be alone
Although you haven’t got a name yet, baby
My hearts not made of stone
And I want you to know you'll never be alone
And I need you to know you'll never be alone
