It's was an awkward situation and everyone agreed
People left her standing in her greatest hour of need
It was a turning point in history but the change was yet to come
She had a baby out of wedlock when she was just a teen
And there was no disguising the place that she had been
And to avoid their frowning faces she gave her child away
And there's a sweet little girl with no-one there to hold her
A sweet little girl no-one to hold her tight
And she can't hide her need for love
Though she may try to cover it up
Just a sweet little girl
Well a couple from the east side who couldn't have their own
Completed al the papers and they took the baby home
And she filled their life with laughter and took the failure from their eyes
And she grew up in the valley in the shadow of their love
And on her fifteenth birthday they told her what they'd done
Well she cried and called them family but wondered where life began
Well the man she chose to marry climbed the wall around her heart
And he whispered to her softly Oh my love we'll never part
Sometimes loving words are painful when they let the light shine in the dark
And she walked the road to healing hands trembling n the phone
Mother why'd you leave me and didn't take me home?
And do you know my Daddy? Sorry mama I know that this is hard
Well she gave birth to a baby her Mother's by her side
And Father's in the waiting well they heard the baby cry
See the healing of a family through the sacred gift of life
And there's a sweet little girl with someone there to hold her
A sweet little girl sopmeone to hold her tight
And she can't hide her need for love
She may try to cover it up
Just a sweet little girl
