Lyrics:

A mother's love is like the rain
It's s'posed to clean you up and take away your pain
It's s'posed to hold you when the night is all but still
So if your mother will not sing to you I will
Daddy's hands are like a brick
Strong enough to rip the thorns out of the thick
It's s'posed to carry you when the crowds are all but still
So if your daddy won't protect you I will

I will, I will (2x)
I will love you in their absence

A brother's words are like the wind
They can lift you past the rim
They can push you to the apex of the hill
But if your brother will not stand for you I will
A sister's heart is warm and bright
It makes you wonder if you've ever seen the night
It shouldn't burn your skin when it touches you but still
If your sister will not comfort you I will

I will, I will (2x)
I will love you in their absence

A lover's kiss is like a rose
It makes you shiver when it slips beneath your nose
But I am waiting to redeem the heart they steal
And when your lover runs away from you I will
You shouldn't tear your skin like that
You shouldn't paint your eyes so black
This isn't something that an opiate can kill
And when nobody comes to claim your life I will

I will, I will (3x)
I will love you in the absence of love
