Marianne

So near to life's beginning
A life came to an end
And I was just thinking she'd have a name
And what it would have been
Oh Marianne!

We made a tough decision
One that we could defend
There was this pressure to get ahead
And it was sink or swim
And we gave in

Chorus
No lies, no crying
Nobody feels the pain
Nobody's dreams will ever be shattered
Time and time again








So near to life's beginning
We chose the parent plan
A safe termination of human life
Performed throughout our land
By healing hands

Instrumental

So near to life's beginning
We had the right to choose
While the right of our daughter to be secure
In her Mother's womb
Was refused

Chorus

No lies, no crying
Nobody feels the pain
Nobody's dreams will ever be shattered
Time and time again

Forgive us Lord we've sinned
Forgive us Marianne
