Lyrics

We were so young
And only playing around
And I was ready for adventure
Not for settling down

So when Janey told me she was pregnant
And that she wanted to be my wife
I said wait a minute, Janey, we're only seventeen
We're just starting out our young lives

Let's keep our heads together, girl
Let's look at all of our options
But we both knew what the choices were
There was abortion or adoption

And the doctor we saw, he said it wasn't really life
It's just a formless mass of cells
So Janey and I, we made our choice
And we promised that we'd never tell

But leaving the clinic, we heard someone talk
And it shattered our little world
The doctor was telling the nurses
That the baby was a girl

Would she have brown hair?
Did she have blue eyes?
I've tried to imagine what she would look like so many times
Would she be a tall girl?
Oh, the question's on my mind
Did she have blue eyes like Janey's
And brown hair like mine?

I saw Janey just the other day
In a pro-life movement line
We were in front of the courthouse steps
Praying and carrying signs

And Janey came up to talk to me
And there were tears in her blue eyes
She said there've been millions of innocent babies
Like ours who've already died

And I can't stand on the sidelines anymore
And watch that number grow
Not after what you and I've been through
Not knowing what we know

I still wake up late some nights
And think I heard her call my name
And I still have her photograph
In an empty picture frame

Would she have brown hair?
Did she have blue eyes?
I've tried to imagine what she would look like so many times
Would she be a tall girl?
Oh, the question's on my mind
Did she have blue eyes like Janey's
And brown hair like mine?

Did she have blue eyes like Janey's
And brown hair like mine?
