Somebody took my baby

Somebody took my baby
Somebody took my child
The day it went black, the stork he came back
Only had her for a while
It’s seems so wrong but now she’s gone

Somebody took the magic
Somebody took the charm
They gave us a gift only to lift
It out of these frantic arms
It’s so wrong but now she’s gone

Somebody took the music
A lullaby that played in each room
Somebody took the sunshine
And left in a shadow of doom.

Somebody took the answers
To the only question we ever had
Now the days and the nights, are a flicker of light
In the memory of a passing fad
It seems so wrong but now she’s gone

Somebody took the music
Sweetest song we ever heard
Turned it a deadening silence
And left us at a loss for words

Somebody took our baby
Somebody took our girl
All the remains is a discarded name
And the pieces of a shattered world
It seems so wrong but now she’s gone
