We were young
We were restless
We were reaching for the stars
We had passion and we burned down the nights

Just a high school
Prince and princess
We'd build castles in the sky
When you're so much in love there is no wrong or right

We weren't ready
For a child in our lives
We weren't ready then
We were children ourselves
But it still hurts inside

I hope you're still up in heaven
'cause I need you now
I hope your still in labor
And can hear my prayers somehow
So that when I'm older
There will be no doubts
I hope you're still up in heaven
'cause I need you now

You'd be 16 now and counting
You'd have lovers of your own
And I'd be staying up
Just for you to come home

When the gift of life is taken
Can it ever be returned?
Or are you waiting in
The wings of my soul?

Oh, we weren't ready
For a child in our lives
We weren't ready then
We were children ourselves,
But I know our choice was right

I hope you're still up in heaven
'cause I need you now
I hope your still in labor
And can hear my prayers somehow
So that when I'm older
There will be no doubts
I hope you're still up in heaven
'cause I need you now

You've got to make your choices
It's got to be your choice
It's a life
It's the gift of life (it's the gift of life)

You've got to make your choices
Some of them will hurt
But you know it's right inside
That's the gift of life

Well now I'm ready
I need someone to hold
My hands are empty
And I'm reaching for you
When I'm all alone

I hope you're still up in heaven
'cause I need you now
I hope your still in labor
And can hear my prayers somehow
So that when I'm older
There will be no doubts
I hope you're still up in heaven
'cause I need you now
I hope you're still up in heaven
'cause I need you now
The gift of life is precious
I wanna give it back somehow

You've got to make your choices
It's got to be your choice
It's a life
It's the gift of life (it's the gift of life)

You've got to make your choices
Some of them will hurt
But you know it's right inside
That's the gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life
The gift of life (fade)
