Oh my last innocent, my little baby girl
How can I save you from the truth of this world?
How can I save you from feeling strife?
How can I save you from fearing all in life?
Baby girl, this world is ready to attack;
to tear you to pieces when you turn your back
So how can I keep you from shedding tears?
Tell me how can I dissipate all your fears?
Baby I want you to always be pure
Cause once this world's got you there ain't no cure
I wish I could fix everything for you my baby
But the life you're just starting is bound to be crazy
Oh how I wish I could take all the bad away!
How I wish I could give you only the sunniest of days!
But I can't, so stay innocent, my baby girl
Cause there's no way to save you from the truth of this world

I think this one is really sweet. That parental fear of such a fragile little life growing up in all the crazy stuff that happens today. Nice job, Emmy!

Having two daughters of my own, I can truly understand the sentiment behind you words. Well spoken and from the heart.
