If I’d had a daughter

If I had, had a daughter, I’d have named her Madeleine.

If I’d had to be a mother, I’d do things differently than mine.

I’d try not to shelter her without crossing the invisible line.

If I had a daughter I would teach her not to be a used bandaid..

I’d teach her that she’s not a vacuum meant to clean up the mess that others made..

I’d teach her not to be a crutch, I’d teach her that she’s not a cane..

Id say “Darling were damned to feel too much but we’re not a bandaid for the pain..”

Cause baby all these damn emotions, its in our blood to want to help..

But baby not everyone’s coping and they’ll drag you to their hell”

And if I had a daughter I’d teach her not to be a maid,

It’s not her job to clean up messes,

No it is not her price to pay.

If I had a daughter I’d teach her she’s not a bandaid..

She’s already been forgiven her sins have already been paid.
