Jason Mraz Love for a Child Lyrics

There's a picture on my kitchen wall
Looks like Jesus and his friends involved
There's a party getting started in the yard
There's a couple getting steamy in the car
parked in the drive
Am I too young to see this with my eyes?
And by the pool that night apparently
The chemicals weren't mixed properly
You hit your head and then forgot your name
You woke up at the bottom by the drain
Now your altitude and memory's a shame

What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
With little bit more of some innocence
I haven't had enough - it's probably because
When you're young, it's okay to be easily ignored
I'd like to believe it was all about love for a child

When the house was left in shambles
Who was there to handle all the broken bits of glass
Was it mom who put my dad out on his a**?
Or the other way around
I'm far too old to care about that now

What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
With little bit more of some innocence
I haven't had enough - it's probably because
When you're young, it's okay to be easily ignored
I'd like to believe it was all about love for a child

It's kinda nice to work the floor since the divorce
I've been enjoying both my Christmases
and my birthday cakes
And taking drugs and making love at far too young an age
And they never checked to see my grades
What a fool I'd be to start complaining now

What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
With little bit more of some innocence
I haven't had enough - it's probably because
When you're young, it's okay to be easily ignored
I'd like to believe it was all about love for a child
