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
