I didn't know your mother
But this is what I have been told
That she cried and she cried
When she gave you up at three days old

She was from the countryside in Cambodia,
A farmer's wife with too many mouths to feed
She wanted you to see a better life
Love takes the best of you, Love takes the best of you
Love takes the best of you, Love takes the best of you

Now you don't look like me
And baby we don't look like you
But our love is so complete
It don't matter eyes are brown or blue

There are people in this world
Who won't understand this family
We'll protect you where we can
Sometimes you'll have to stand and help them see

'Cause love takes the best of you, Love takes the best of you
Love takes the best of you, Love takes the best of you
Every night when I watch you sleep
I want to watch over you forever

Keep you safe with me
And I wish I could promise you a beautiful world
That would never break your heart
Maybe that's what we are here for

We try and fix what comes apart
Love takes the best of you, Love takes the best of you
Love takes the best of you, Love takes the best of you
