cast recording – warning lyrics


so there it is, claire it is, as you feared
all these years of wonder
their closure draws near
a quiet kind of distance, a word i would not touch
did i ever know my son at all?
well now i know too much
but where was the warning?
how can this be?
i guess there are some things
we don’t want to see
where was the warning?
to know this was coming
now what do i do with
this news i find numbing
where was the warning?
where was the warning?
and what if i liked the song i heard before
the one i sang when my boy was born
all the dreams i had for him, they fade away
lost in words i could not say
i wish that i could hold him, god he’s all alone and scared
i should be there for him
i love him so, but i am not prepared
and where was the warning?
his father will die
how do i tell him?
he can’t see me cry
where was the warning?
don’t tell anyone
i won’t want their pity
i just want my son
it’s happened, it’s happened
and life is so strange
one simple word, and the whole world has changed
could this really be my child? my firstborn, my child
who lay in his cradle
so tender and mild
