Bonny Child
Songs - Sounds & Lyrics


    How will you grow, my bonny child?
May your feet run ever faster,
May you grow up sweet and wild,
May the hills ring with your laughter.


    How will you grow, my bonny child?
May your eyes be filled with wonder,
May your mind be always open,
And your days be unnumbered.


    Refrain        How will you grow?
    How will you heal?
    How will you know
    That love is real?


    How will you grow, my bonny child?
Will your innocence be broken
By the ones whose only care
Is that the secret remains unspoken?


    How will you grow, my bonny child?
Will the hatred turn inside you,
Til the darkness is your friend
And you long for it to hide you?

    Refrain

    How will you grow, my bonny child?
May you find the voice of anger,
May your spirit claim its power
And keep you far from danger.


    How will you grow, my bonny child?
May you learn to break the silence.
May your heart be strong and free,
May you turn away from violence.

    Refrain
