Look at the clock, tell me what time does it say
Can you ignore while time is ticking away.
Here in the silence I fear a choice has been made
I wish this song I get a chance to say these words to you before it’s too late

Mama, mama, let me live.
Mama, mama, let me live.
Cuz I’m too small to fight
And I don’t even know my name
Just try to put yourself in my place
I’ll try real hard to put a smile on your face
And all I’m asking you today is to let me live.

Look at my fingers, see how I’m moving my hands
Who can believe it, I’m not a living child yet
If you could see me, see my blood rush through my veins
Oh can you feel it, this tiny heart of mine, and with every beat it’s trying to say

Mama, mama, let me live
Mama, mama, let me live
Cuz I’m too small to fight
And I’d do anything to stay
Just try to put yourself in my place
I’ll try real hard to put a smile on your face
And all I’m asking you today is to let me live.

I wait in the silence, of this fragile moment
And I can hear your voice saying I’ve made my choice but I pray you’ll find it in your soul to change your mind before it’s too late.

Mama, mama, let me live.
Mama, mama, let me live.
Cuz I’m too small to fight
And I’ll do anything to stay.
Just try to put yourself in my place
I’ll try real hard to put a smile on your face
And all I’m asking you today is to let me live.

I’ll make you proud.
