Tenement slum
 
You think that I don't feel love
But what I feel for you is real love
In other's eyes I see reflected
A hurt, scorned, rejected
 
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
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 contemplating
Isn't worth the pain of waiting
We'll only end up hating
The child we maybe creating
 
Love child, never meant to be
Love child, scorned by society
Love child, always second best
Love child, different from the rest
 
Hold on, hold on, just a little bit
Hold on, hold on, just a little bit
 
Baby I started school
In a worn, torn dress that 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 you
Don't think I don't wanna please you
But no child of mine will be bearing
The name of shame I've been wearing
 
Love child, love child
Never quite as good
Afraid, ashamed
Misunderstood
 
But I'll always love you
I'll always love you
I'll always love you
I'll always love you
I'll always love you
I'll always love you
I'll always love you
