Dear Child (So Many Ways)

I don't know what it is
About you that makes me feel complete
Your smile brings me peace
Your laughter can heal my world

If I choose
To, love you
If I choose
To, leave you
If I choose to
To, embrace you
Maybe some day
I can be as you are
Dear Child

The thought of you in pain
I cant imagine
Cut so deep I just cant explain
Ohhh
You deserve so much better
Than a world that puts you last, puts you last

If we choose
To hurt you
If we choose
To ignore you
We choose
To make you cry
In a world that will never
Be as pure as you are
Dear Child

So many ways to love ya
So many ways to teach ya
So many ways to please ya
So many ways to make you laugh (x2)

Oh if I choose (x2)
Dear Child

Yes I know what it is
About you that makes me feel complete
Your smile brings me peace
Your laughter heals my world

So many ways to love ya
So many ways to teach ya
So many ways to please ya
So many ways to meet ya

Let me count the ways

Dear child
We can count the ways
