    Lyrics

    As a youth, each Sunday, Dawn went to church and

    Paid her respects and not to mention was a virgin

    Kid pushed up, Dawn lettin' him

    Since he made her laugh and all the other girls was sweatin' him

    Then things started to move without cause

    And a couple o' months later kid's pushin' for the drawers

    Under pressure while exchangin' glances

    Dawn finally gives in to the sexual advances

    Although it was a mad high cost for her

    ?Cuz after the thrill was gone, so was the lust for her

    Eventually he left her for another

    Now feeling alone and betrayed by her lover

    She cried for no longer knew which way she headed

    Once dreamed of actually wearing white at her wedding

    And really being pure, now she thought she'd die without

    Still she finds strength to continue with her life without

    Love

    Without love

    Without love

    Without love

    Verse two of Dawn's life the second segment

    What could be worse than to now find out you're pregnant?

    Poor Dawn couldn't sleep laid awake

    Not ready for a child and plus her mother's gonna break

    As she doesn't know how she's gonna bring up the subject

    Consequences of being used as an object

    In church though time's runnin' thin

    She decides to have the child because the doesn't want to sin

    Props to the girl although it hit hard times

    It was hell finishin' school and working part-time

    Yet Dawn did it though her youth went to waste

    Little help from the government, she got her own place

    Hard for an independent woman and a kid

    And as soon as she could get off the assistance, she did

    Without no man who she once thought she'd die without

    Still she finds the strength to continue with her life without

    Love

    Life without love

    Life without love

    Continue with her life without love

    While Dawn worked two jobs tryin' to meet ends

    Her son was busy cuttin' school and hangin' with his friends

    So when she got words she tried to slap out the taste in his mouth

    And explain how important education is

    Under stress, she takes two bufferin'

    Son now tired of seein' his poor mother sufferin'

    Starts to sell drugs though the cops did a raid

    Guess who's in the mix, and being legal age

    Could do time, please call her employer

    To inform her that her son is gonna' need a lawyer

    Never no good news, just more strife

    Dawn barely havin' enough time to live her own life

    Here's the judge's sentence, beggin' and pleadin'

    Now spends nine hours on the bus to go and see him

    Here's the judge's sentence, beggin' and pleadin'

    Now spends nine hours on the bus to Goa and see him

    Without no man who she once thought she'd die without

    Still she finds the strength to continue with her life without

    Love

    Life without love

    Life without love

    Life without love

    Continues life without love
