My friend wants a baby but I'm not so sure
She doesn't just need something, completion for her
Validation in a crib without real love to give or
Validation to a child

Every time I see her I want to say something
But you know it's not my place and another thing
It's only been a couple of years
Since we worked out our own tears
And frankly I don't want to fight

I don't know her husband all too well
But he seems like a nice guy and I think it's swell
That they married up, settled down,
Smashed the cup, stopped fooling around
Man I hope it lasts a million years

But I don't see real comfort in this man's face
Just a blind desire to add to the race
When there are already enough
crawling around on this blue Earth
Children unwanted and alone

In the morning sunlight I look down at my friend's face
And I know he wants to adopt a child like nobody else
But according to a law he has not the right at all
Because he shares his love with me

I don't know the logic behind this fear
All I know is that they're making armies out there
While we sit here and we stall
The fear of love permeates us all
Being children unwanted and alone
