When the Time Comes

(Heartfelt ballad about the mother of an adopted child.  Female vocal)

Your eyes are brown and mine are blue
but someone somewhere looks just like you
Yes I’m your mama and you’re my baby girl
but another woman brought you in this world

I wish you could stay innocent forever
but one day you’ll put two and two together

CHORUS
When the time comes and you start to wonder why
the woman who carried you didn’t keep you in her life
Will you want her, will you hate her, or pretend you just don’t care
all I know is I’ll be there when the time comes

Will I find the words, or will it come out wrong?
Will you grow up asking “Where do I belong?”
When you look in the mirror, I hope you’ll always see
Something beautiful; part of her and part of me

You’ve always been my moon and sun and stars
From the moment I first held you in my arms

CHORUS
When the time comes and you start to wonder why
the woman who carried you didn’t keep you in her life
Will you want her, will you hate her, or pretend you just don’t care
all I know is I’ll be there when the time comes
