My Name by George Canyon

Yesterday while I was home I was watching some talk show, Vicki Gabereau or something?!!? And the winner of Nashville Star was on there, George Canyon. He sang this song that he wrote for his cousin who had a miscarriage. Its written from the perspective of the baby. We've all known someone who has experienced such a sad thing so I thought I would share the lyrics. It's called My Name.

It’s cold in here feels like everything’s upside down
I can feel you talking but I can barely make out the sound
I been kicking around these parts, feels like a year
I’m gonna change this world if I ever get out of here
She wants to dress me in pink, paint’s my bedroom blue
And I just laugh to myself, because only I know the truth
This love is my only emotion
Haven’t learned any fear any pain
It’s kind of funny with all this commotion
I guess they’ve got me, to blame
And they don’t even know my name
And they don’t even know my name

Well I’ve never felt so ready, think it’s finally time
Cause that big old world is waiting, and it’s mine all mine
Just then everything got real quiet, it got real bright
And a man took my hand said don’t worry, your mommas gonna be alright
Then he opened the gate, & I followed him in
Said you can wait right here, till it’s your turn again
And his love is the one true emotion
Heaven knows no fear no pain
I never got to set my wheels in motion
But they loved me just the same
And they didnt even know my name
Didn’t even know my name
You loved me just the same
And you didn’t even know my name

Isn't that an awesome blog. Colin's cousin Jen actually has that song included on the web site she has set up for the baby she lost. I bet that it connects with alot of mom's who have had miscarriages.
