[Verse 1]
What if I never had a chance to be grown?
What if I never saw the sun that is lighting up my home?
If I was destroyed, would you throw me away?
Because this type of thing happens everyday.
I know this story, this woman only minimum age,
She's pregnant in her childhood, without an escape.
The father didn't want responsibility so he ran,
She was scared, so she turned to diabolical plans.
Her child's growing, inside her he's genetical strands,
That make up organs in his body, now he's forming his hands.
While she's thinking of her choices for the quicker safety net,
The doctor tells her it's okay, 'cause it's not really a baby yet.

[Verse 2]
She leaves with some worry, she needs time to think,
She tells her parents and her friends all think it's a mistake,
But some people make her feel like she's doing it wrong,
She's only fifteen, how could she be a good mom?
The fact of it is, it's still a kid in the womb,
God can see it as it's forming, tell me what would He do?
This is not just a product, you can't destroy or just sell him,
And if he asked you why he died, what could you possibly tell him?
The pressure was growing, and her conscience was eating,
She decided not to do it, left decisions depleting.
Let me leave you with this before you chose your beliefs:
That woman was my mom and that child was me, now you see.

[Chorus]
What if you never knew my name?
What if this song could make a change?
(What if I...)
And what if I never lived a day?
There's got to be a better way.
(What if I...)
Make our mistakes and do our wrongs,
Never think twice just move along.
(What if I...)
Where there's a will there is a way,
And there is a better way.

What if I

[Verse 3]
I'd like to take a little time for some serious rhymes,
I congratulate this lady that has given me life.
She had some tough decisions, she was young and she was scared,
But she let it all work out, it was right and was fair.
I can't imagine, sucking a baby out as fluid,
And though living's a little tough, I am thankful to do it,
'Cause there's so many growing that really don't even know,
They'll be taken out for garbage while they're forming their toes.
This is real what I'm speakin', have your thrills on the weekend,
But when your pill doesn't cease it, you better deal with the pieces.
I got a feeling you see it, you just don't want to believe it,
You get your bill to release it to someone killing your fetus,
And just because it's gone, it's vanished without a trace,
You think it isn't wrong, murder murder was the case.
I don't want to sit and listen to the excuses you test,
If you're not gonna be responsible, quit having sex.

What if I...

[Chorus]
What if you never knew my name?
What if this song could make a change?
(What if I...)
And what if I never lived a day?
There's got to be a better way.
(What if I...)
Make our mistakes and do our wrongs,
Never think twice just move along.
(What if I...)
Where there's a will there is a way,
And there is a better way.

What if I...

[Bridge]
I was young and I was scared,
I was young and I was scared,
Who could this be - this life, this life inside of me?
It could be you...
It could be me...

[Chorus]
What if you never knew my name?
What if this song could make a change?
(What if I...)
And what if I never lived a day?
There's got to be a better way.
(What if I...)
Make our mistakes and do our wrongs,
Never think twice just move along.
(What if I...)
Where there's a will there is a way,
And there is a better way.

What if I

A better way
