Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Diana Ross Supremes  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[Bm]You think that I don't feel love,
[C]But what I feel for you is real love.
[Am]In other's eyes I see reflected,
a [F]hurt, scorned, [E]rejected.

[Am]Love child, [G]never meant to be.
[F]Love child, [E]born in poverty.
[Am]Love child, [G]never meant to be.
[F]Love child, [E]take a look at me.

I [Am]started my life in an [G]old, cold, [D]rundown [Am]tenement slum.
My [G]father left, he [D]never even [Am]married Mom.
I [Am]shared the guilt my [C]Mama knew,
[D]so afraid that [F]others knew I [E]had no name.
[Bm]This love we're contemplatin',
[C]Is worth the pain of waitin'.
[Am]We'll only end up hatin',
[F]The child we [E]may be creatin'.
[Am]Love child, [G]never meant to be.
[F]Love child, [E]scorned by society.
[Am]Love child, [G]always second best.
[F]Love child, [E]different from the rest.
[Am]Hold on...[G]Mm, ba[D]by.
[Am]Hold on...[G]Mm, ba[D]by.

[Am]I started school in a [G]worn, torn [D]dress that
some[Am]body threw out.
I [G]knew the way it [D]felt, to always [Am]live in doubt,
to [Am]be without the [C]simple things,
[D]so afraid my [F]friends would see...the [E]guilt in me.
[Bm]Don't think that I don't need ya,
[C]Don't think I don't wanna please ya.
[Am]But no child of mine'll be bearin',
[F]the name of [E]shame I've been wearin'.
[Am]Love child, [G]never quite as good,
[F]afraid, ashamed, [E]misunderstood.
But [Am]I'll always [G]love you....[F]I'll always [E]love you.(x3).

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
