Light Hearted Latin Jazzy Reggae Pop

This is the story of a young couple who were friends with our son Freedom, back in the days when he was known as Aaron. He told us how Truly and Donnie were living out on the streets and that Truly  had gotten pregnant. We never got to meet them and I have always wondered how it went for them and the new life they were bringing into the world. I think birth is a miracle and I have always been mystified why so many people who don't want babies get pregnant and even choose to destroy that new life when so many people who want babies can't have them. I have profound respect for the woman who has the grace to give new life a chance even though it means giving the wonder of parenting to someone else

Child With a Child

Truly's gonna have a baby come the early fall
Donnie don't have a lot to say, he don't have a clue at all
Caught on the wings of fire in loving arms they flew
But they never thought that life would spring
From the loving that they knew
She's a child with a child

Sixteen summers gone now in six months Truly's due
Donnie don't have a lot to say, ain't nothing he can do
Caught on the wings of passion a love was born from need
But there ain't no way to cash in on the innocent gone to seed
She's a child with a child

Young lovers take caution, young hearts you'd better beware
The feelings nice but you can pay a price
For the loving that you share
She's a child with a child

Donnie says don't worry about it baby we'll just wait and see
We can live on love the whole day long
‘Cause we're young and strong and free
Caught on the wings of passion a child will soon be born
Donnie feels like dashing and Truly starts to mourn
She's a child with a child

A miracle is taking place in the danger zone
The new life that's forming there is already
On its own
She's a child with a child

Waiting for the sun to sink into the western sky
Searching for a place to sleep Truly starts to cry
Caught on the wings of fire a love was born from need
And the passion took her higher and drove her to his knees
She's a child with a child

Young lovers take caution, young hearts you'd better beware
The feelings nice but you can pay a price
For the loving that you share
She's a child with a child
