Tiny heartbeats beneath me
I could've sworn I felt you breathing
And yet...

I couldn't wait to meet you
To see your big eyes, colored blue
And yet...

I never got the chance
I'm sorry I couldn't fight
But I would've given my last breath
I would've died
For you

Started with a pink plus sign
I knew you were mine
And yet...

I imagined you growing up
I was ready to give you love
And yet...

I  never got the chance
I'm sorry I couldn't fight
But I would've given my last breath
I would've died
For you

It was three in the morning,
I'm in a hospital bed
With blood on my legs, I was a mess
Your daddy had tears in his eyes
And I could already tell
Because I felt empty inside, I was empty inside

What wouldn't I give?
There's nothing I wouldn't give
I wish I was dead

And yet...
