lyrics

So, where were we again?
There was a second war
There was a wardrobe
There was a thunderstorm
and a hiding game
The youngest of the children went for tea

And here you are
with all your life supports
I hope you hear me reading you to sleep
No first steps, but there were first breaths
And we were just as proud of them
That's why the best thing we'll ever do
was our decision to keep you

So, where were we again?
He was on the move
He'd just returned
He had come to scare the winter with his wail

There was a proper place
and an ancient way
And when the winter breaks, we'll have you back again

Now here you are
Freed from your life supports
I hope you hear me reading you to sleep
No first steps, but there were first breaths
And we were just as proud of them
That's why the best thing we'll ever do
was our decision to keep you

Still no first steps, but there were first breaths
And we held you till goodbye
That's why the best thing we'll ever do
was our decision to keep you
