I know that I'm no saint.
My head is in the clouds.
They called you a mistake,
But I still, I still say your name out loud.

They called me a stupid girl,
Just like my mom.
Too many men passed through my arms.
At seventeen I looked into your eyes,
Knew I could never comfort your cries.
 Every April still reminds me of you.
The child I never knew.
My lullaby in blue.

It all goes by so fast.
How lovely you must be.
Why you've reached the age at last
That I was when your daddy lived with me.

How I wish we could meet somewhere,
Talk it through.
 There is so much I would say to you.
 There are others, I'm not alone.
A younger brother you've never known,
And a baby girl who so reminds me of you.
The child I never knew.
My lullaby in blue.

As the years go by,
Try not to think of us sadly.
 Believe it if you can,
I want to see you so badly.
On your birthday, Mama's thinking of you.
The child I never knew.
My lullaby in blue.
My lullaby in blue.
My lullaby
