Somebody's daughter
Somebody's wife
Somebody's mother
For all of your life.

They all turn to you
When things go wrong
For they all know
That you are strong.

You hold their hands
You calm their fears
You stand beside them
You dry their tears.

Your role was defined
A long time ago
And you reassure them
That you'll never go.

You feel their need
You can see it in their eyes
They depend on you
They think you are wise.

But who do you turn to
When you feel low?
You can never tell them
They must never know.

Somebody's daughter
Somebody's wife
Somebody's mother
For all of your life.
