She loved the man
Who stayed the night
That made the child
Lord it seemed so right

Her mamma cried
And her daddy swore
It nearly broke her heart
She needed so much more

She'll always keep a place for him
Inside her heart
He writes a bit
And people seem sincere
But she wished they'd call it more than
Just a souvenir

Life begin a child within
Life begin a child within

She fell in love
Was that a crime
She's not a bad girl
But you know it happens all the time
You give yourself
To the one you love
Tomorrow heartbreak
You never dream of

Life begin a child within
Life begin a child within
Life begin a child within
