Patti LaBelle - Come What May Lyrics

Wish I was your child
Hold me in your heart
We could love so free
And no, we'd never part
But I'm not a child
And wishes are
Just child's play, my love
Now I'll never be afraid
Of who I am
And who I'm not
Come what may

Wish I was a bird
I'd warm you in my wings
Safe from all the storms
You know true love can bring
But I'm not a bird
And wishes can
Just fly away, my love
And I'll never be afraid
Of who I am
And who I'm not
Come what may

Oh, I'm no fool
Shining in your eyes
Of the above stars, my love
No, we'll never be afraid
Of who we are
And who we're not
Come what may
Of who we are
And who we're not
Come what may
Wish I was your child
Wish I was a bird
Wish I was a child

    This morning in about 6 hours i have to take my beloved dog LADY to be euthanized! My heart's aching . This song always reminds me to accept the cycle of life and to love myself unconditionally as LADY has loved me for the last 12 years. Tears ,tears, tears. Patti Labelle i dont know you personally but I've seen you in concert many times. I've been on stage with you many times during your sing along segments. Ive been blessed enough to receive many embraces from you Patti. When i listen to this song i feel as if I'm being embraced in your loving arms . I'm playing this for my LADY as she lies beside me. This is going to be a heartbreaking day .This song is an EMOTIONAL MASTERPIECE. I love you Miss Patti. May you live a long blessed life.

    Derek Callier

  34. willie muse

    my my my love this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. Asayud Whaddameant

    I miss the smoother softer side of Patti.  The electric, high volume, shoe-kicking live performances can actually make you forget that most of her earlier recordings were much more subdued.

  36. LewisRonny

    "Come With May" by Patti Labelle...Oh, How remember this song. I be in tears when here this Beautiful song.

  46. 2710Pocahontas

    This song brings back so many feelings of wanting to be accepted from my family for being gay and now living as a transgendered woman. I remember this song helping me through some tough times in the early 90's as it is helping me in 2014. I lost a very dear cousin on New Year's Eve at 39yrs.old only to lose her father four days later to throat cancer.  Me, being very close to my cousin and her uncle was asked by my MOTHER not to attend the funeral as a transgendered person because she is embarrassed.  Mind you, I am 42yrs. of age and have been transgered for 21yrs. I will never forget the statement that my mother said that she would rather see me dead than be gay.  Some things never change! This is why I am in my feelings tonight

    Yvette Smith

    So horrible, she doesn't want to see you dead, it will be so much she should have said. You have the heart, the spirit you were born with, so be free of here feelings and NEVER BE AFRAID OF WHO YOU ARE AND WHO YOU'RE NOT, COME WHA MAY YOU ARE STILL HER CHILD 😂I FEEL U DEEP BE HAPPY!

    Tracey Glover

    2710Pocahontas you are loved and accepted never dwell on bring transgendered only u can walk in your shoes. Nobody opinion matters in your life. God bless you❤️❤️🌈🌈

    Zachary Harris
