Song Description

This song is about regreting a choice which was made mutually by a couple under pressure to choose to abort their child. The tone is non-judgemental, and not preachy; it is sung from the man's point of view at a time of realization that they would have had a daughter, and that she would have been named Marianne.

Story Behind the Song

How things might have been if a young couple decided to have their child, and giving her a name after the fact: Marianne

So near to life's beginning
A life came to an end
And I was just thinking she'd have a name
And what it would have been
Oh Marianne!

We made a tough decision
One that we could defend
There was this pressure to get ahead
And it was sink or swim
And we gave in


No lies, no crying
Nobody feels the pain
Nobody's dreams will ever be shattered
Time and time again

So near to life's beginning
We chose the parent plan
A safe termination of human life
Performed throughout our land
By healing hands


So near to life's beginning
We had the right to choose
While the right of our daughter to be secure
In her Mother's womb
Was refused


No lies, no crying
Nobody feels the pain
Nobody's dreams will ever be shattered
Time and time again

Forgive us Lord we've sinned
Forgive us Marianne
