fatherless child lyrics – nikka costa

heaven spoke too loud
left me a fatherless child
occurs to me everyday
but your memory makes me proud
you’re the one i hold
you’re the first man i loved
and all that follow
have a mountain to rise above

and there’s a hole inside of me
where i put flowers so i can breathe
and though the winters have come and gone
you’re still my heart, you’re still my sun

somehow i always knew
what i lost was never gone
’cause there’s a part of you
inside of me that carries on

and there’s a hole inside of me
where i put flowers so i can breathe
and though the winters have come and gone
you’re still my heart, you’re still my sun

heaven spoke too loud
left me a fatherless child
and there are time you know
i really wish you were around

and i’ll try to make you proud
’cause you’re the break in every cloud
and i’m convinced that’s why
the sun shine on me
