Lullaby In Blue

I know that I am no saint
My head is in the clouds
They called you a mistake
But I still I still say your name outloud

They called me stupid girl, just like my mom
To many men have passed through my arms
At seventeen I looked into your eyes
Knew I could never comfort your cries
Every April reminds me of you
The child I never new
My lullabye in blue

It all goes by so fast
How lovely you must be
Why you’ve reached the age at last
That I was when your daddy lived with me
How I wish we could meet somewhere
Talk it through
There is so much I would say to you
There are others, I’m not alone
A younger brother you’ve never known
And a baby girl who so reminds me of you
The child I never knew
My lullabye in blue

As the years go by
Try not to think of the sadly
But even if you can’t
I want to see you so badly
On your birthday
Mommas thinking of you
The child I never knew
My lullabye in blue
My lullabye in blue
My lullabye
Bette Midler - 1998

I love that song, she sings it so well too but she didn't write the song. Adam Cohen and Brock Walsh did, sound like made up names don't they.
