When you were born into this world
Your mom and dad saw a dream fulfilled
A dream come true, the answer to their prayer
You were to them a special child
You gave them joy everytime you smiled
Each time you cried, they're at your side to care
Child you don't know, you'll never know
How far they'll go, to give you all their love can give
To see you through, and god it's true
They'll die for you, if they must,to see you here
The above is the first part of the lyrics to this old song, Child - which is an English version of a classic Tagalog song Anak by Philippino folk-singer,Freddie Aguilar (you can listen to the full version of the song here ). It's a beautiful song with a haunting melody and poignant story about a parent's love for a wayward child. I've always managed to remember the first part of the lyrics (although I can't be sure that it's entire accurate but it's based on my listening of the song)even though I've probably last heard the song almost 15 years ago.
Anyone knows the full (and probably more accurate) lyrics of this song?
