Stolen

I was, and am, very moved by the plight of the women (girls) in the mother and babies homes that had their children taken from them. I wrote the lyrics of a song about it. Now I just have to find a way to contact Sinead O’ Connor and get her to record it…. Enjoy.

Stolen

They tried to hide the shame so they sent him on a plane,
His baby blues I’ll never see again.
Adoption boards and government, they wash it from their hands
While my baby that I carried,
Was taken in the dead of night, bound for a foreign land.

Made from youth and innocence,
When two lay down and love made three,
Ripped out from my womb and my heart you were,
Stolen from me.

The ones that never bore a child look down their nose at me,
They say you were a BASTARD, brought shame upon my family.
They want me to deny you, say you were never born.
I look across the water now and I…wonder where you are,
Are you happy, feeling loved?
And whose arms now keep you warm.

Made from youth and innocence,
When two lay down and love made three,
Ripped out from my womb and my heart you were,
Stolen from me.

Don’t forget you had a Daddy, and him as green as me,
They banished him to ENGLAND,
He took a rope and found a tree.
We were young, we didn’t know,
That when we lay together, flesh to flesh
The seed would start to grow.
At first I didn’t understand, till it was plain to see,
My belly became swollen with the love he gave to me.

Made from youth and innocence,
When two lay down and love made three
Ripped out from my womb and my heart you were,
Stolen from me.

I know you’ll never find me
All trace of me destroyed.
I never signed the papers, the signature was forged.
Sent to a barren couple
With wallets full but empty crib.
She never felt you grow inside of her
But she’s the one that you call mother,
Will she tell you that your life’s a lie?
And that you had another.

Made from youth and innocence
When two lay down and love made three
Ripped out from my womb and my heart, you were
Stolen from me.
