09. Malia's Song

Copperlily
by Copperlily

       
Lyrics:

Hey there little girl,
I've seen diamond stars way up in the sky,
I've seen setting suns that make you wanna cry,
I've seen your mom and daddy bring you into life,

The day you were born,
I was caught up in some selfish little game,
Playing victim looking for someone to blame,
Then I held you and I'll never be the same.

Oh, Malia don't you know?
You're the prize to those who came before,
A joy that we have never known,

Wonderful and cruel,
Yeah this world will try to get the best of you,
Hold your heart close then break it in two,
But every morning you can start all over new.

Love's a simple song,
But sometimes you'll find it hard to sing in tune,
yeah sometimes you'll drop the beat and that's the truth,
But we'll never stop singing along with you

Broken nails and fairy tales,
Broken hearts and shopping carts,
And I hope that you find Jesus somewhere along the way,
And though I can't change your heart, I'll pray for you each day.

Oh, Malia don't you know?
You're a brand new shade of beautiful,
I praise the Lord each day for you, little girl.


Note from Tim: Malia is our niece. She is my sister's firstborn daughter and she was my first niece. I started writing that song the day she was born, and then Stephanie and I finished it when she was two or so
