Pray God
You can cope
I stand outside this woman's work
This woman's world
Ooh
It's hard on the man
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the father

I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left
I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left

I should be crying but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping but I can't stop thinking
Of all the things I should've said that I never said
All the things we should've done that we never did
All the things I should've given but I didn't

Oh
My darling make it go
Make it go away

Give me these moments back
Give them back to me
Give me that little kiss
Give me your hand

I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left
I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left

I should be crying but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping but I can't stop thinking
Ooh
Of all the things we should've said that were never said
All the things we should've done that we never did
All the things that you needed from me
All the things that you wanted for me
All the things that I should've given but I didn't

Oh
Darling make it go
Make it go away now
Oh

    The song was written for the movie "she's having a baby" it was about being forced to confront an unexpected and frightening crisis during the event of childbirth. When kevin bacon finds out the life of his baby and wife are in danger... The song plays and a montage of sequences flash before him of when he was happy with his wife. So the song was written specifically for this movie. Beautiful song!!!

    I think its about a man who is in love with a woman how is really sick and he knows she might not make it ... He sees how strong she is and thinks that she "has a little life in her yet" but hes still praying to god ... Also the part where he says that he should be crying but he just cant let it show is like when you have to be strong or someone elses sake.
