It was great, he went everywhere with me;
we had loads of fun together.
But as I got bigger, people told me my voice was too loud
I spent less time with him
he got lonely and sad, I watched him get smaller and smaller
I wanted to see him, but I was told to keep quiet, to stop making a fuss
And because I didn't look after him, he went away.
So later, when I wanted a voice, when I really needed one, he wasn't there.
Some people never have a voice, some people have their voice taken away from them
You have to look after your voice, nurture it, care for it, raise it right
so that when you need it, or other people need it, it's there for you
Otherwise you might not notice when it's gone
