Love Child lyrics

by

Luther Vandross


She's a love child just like me
She's a love child just like me

Listen
Started my life
In an old, cold, run-down tenement slum
(Oh, no, oh, no)
Oh, yes, oh, yes
My father left
But before he left, you see
He forgot to marry my mama
I shared the guilt my mama knew
So afraid that others knew I had no name

Ah, this love we're contemplatin'
Is worth the pain of waitin'
We'll only end up hatin'
The child we may be creatin'

Love child
Never meant to be
A love child
Born in poverty
Love child
Never meant to be
A love child
Take a look at me

(Hold on, hold on)
A little bit longer
(Hold on, hold on)
(Hold on, hold on)
Just a little longer
(Hold on, hold on)
Yeah
(Mmm, baby)

She's a love child just like me
She's a love child just like me
She's a love child just like me
(She's a love, love, love, love, love, love...like me)
And I love her
She's a love child just like me
(She's a love, love, love, love, love, love...like me)
And that's why I love her

I started school
In a worn, torn shirt
That one of the neighbors threw out
(Oh, no, oh, no)
I knew the way that it felt to always live in doubt
To be without the simple things
So afraid my friends would see the guilt in me

Ah, don't think that I don't need ya
Don't think I don't wanna please ya
No child of mine will be bearin'
The name of shame that I'm wearin'

Love child
Never quite as good
Afraid, ashamed, misunderstood
But I'll always love you
(Hold on a little bit longer now)
(Love child, a little bit longer, baby)
(Hold on a little bit longer now)
I'll always love you
(Hold on)

(Hold on, hold on)
A little bit longer
(Hold on, hold on)
(Hold on, hold on)
Just a little longer now
(Hold on, hold on)
Yeah
(Mmm, baby)

She's a love child just like me
She's a love child just like me
She's a love child just like me
(She's a love, love, love, love, love, love...like me)
And I love her
She's a love child just like me
(She's a love, love, love, love, love, love...like me)
And that's why I love her

She's a love child just like me
(She's a love, love, love, love, love, love...like me)
And that's why I love her, I love her
She's a love child just like me
(Love, love, love, love, love, love...like me)
And I love her, I love her
She's a love child just like me
(Love, love, love, love, love, love...like me)
