Lyrics
I didn't know your mother
But this is what I have been told
That she cried and she cried
When she gave you up at three days old

She was from the countryside
In Cambodia, a farmer's wife
With too many mouths to feed
She wanted you to see a better life

Love takes the best of you
Love takes the best of you

You don't look like me
And baby, we don't look like you
But our love is so complete
It don't matter eyes are brown or blue

There are people in this world
Who won't understand our family
We'll protect you where we can
Some times you'll have to stand
And help them see

Love takes the best of you
Love takes the best of you

Every night when I watch you sleep
I want to watch over you forever
Keep you safe with me

And I wish I could promise you a beautiful world
That would never break your heart
Maybe that's what we are here for
We try and fix what comes apart

Love takes the best of you
Love takes the best of you
Love takes the best of you
Love takes the best of you
