Lyrics

Tenement slum You think that I don't feel love (I'll always) But what I feel for you is real love In others eyes I see reflected (I'll always) A hurt, scorned, rejected (love you, love you)

Love child, never meant to be Love child, born in poverty Love child, never meant to be Love child, take a look at me I started my life in an old, cold run down tenement slum (tenement slum) My father left, he never even married mom I shared the guilt my mama knew So afraid that others knew I had no name This love we're contemplatin' (I'll always) Is worth the pain of waitin' We'll only end up hatin' (I'll always) The child we maybe creatin' (love you, love you) Love child, never meant to be (wait, wait, won't you wait now, hold on) Love child, (scorned by) society Love child, always second best (wait, wait, won't you wait now, hold on) Love child, (different from) different from the rest (Hold on, hold on just a little bit longer) Mmm, baby (Hold on, hold on just a little bit longer) Mmm, baby I started school, in a worn, torn dress that somebody threw out (somebody threw out) I knew the way it felt, to always live in doubt To be without the simple things So afraid my friends would see the guilt in me Don't think that I don't need ya (I'll always) Don't think I don't wanna please ya But no child of mine will be bearin' (I'll always) The name of shame I've been wearin' (love you, love you) Love child, love child, never quite as good (wait, wait, won't you wait now, hold on) Afraid, ashamed, misunderstood (just a little bit longer, love child) But I'll always love you (wait, wait, won't you wait now, hold on) I'll always love you, you, you (just a little bit longer, love child) I'll always love you (wait, wait, won't you wait now, hold on) I'll always love you, you, you (just a little bit longer, love child) I'll always love you (wait, wait, won't you wait now, hold on) I'll always love you, you, you (just a little bit longer, love child)
