Lyrics:

Holding you in my arms, my dear newborn child
Makes me realize how we are all so incredibly fragile
Life can be given and taken in the blink of an eye
But don't you cry...

I know that you're not yet prepared for this new life
Well to tell you the truth, neither am I
Life changes lanes without warning and turns on a dime
All we can do is try...

But you learn as you live and as you live you learn
That there is only one thing that we all need and yearn for
And I know that you may not yet understand my words
But I can see that you can feel this before you've even heard

That love is why we're alive
And love is how we survive
Love pulls us through
And more than anything in the world... I love you

I wish that I could say that I'll always be here for you
But I know that on some unknown day, that just won't be true
Life is given and taken, you don't get to choose
Someday everyone's due

But I'll hold and protect you and dry away your tears
And I'll love and I'll teach you, so you can face your own fears
And one day when I'm gone please don't be sad
Just remember I gave you all the love that I had

And you will learn as you live and as you live you will learn
that there is only one thing we all need and learn for
And I know that you will always remember my words
When you look at your own children and
Feel the emotions they stir

Because love is why we're alive
And love is how we survive
Love pulls us through
And more than anything in the world... I love you
