“Oh Charlotte” Lyrics

by Abby Dorsey

You started out the way that babies do

Two parents were in love and they created you

Twin girls, they patiently awaited you

And on the day you were born they celebrated you

Oh Charlotte, you were such a blessing to the world

Pink cheeks, tiny toes, mom and dad’s baby girl

Oh Charlotte, they couldn’t wait to see you grow

Your parents love you more than you will ever know

But at three months old the seizures hit like an earthquake

Twistin up your body, shakin you in the worst way

Doctors called it epilepsy, they called it Dravets

Every seizure stormed through your eyes like hurricanes

With every surge you were slipping away

Seizure numbers climbing up into the hundreds each day

Oh Charlotte, your parents prayed and prayed

Tried everything they could but you were drifting away

 

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

So beautiful to watch you grow

 

And now your parents they were both singing I won’t give up

If they heard about a treatment they were looking it up

Oh Charlotte, they read every word

Until they read about a herb that was changing the world

For the boys and girls who were just like you

This plant produced an oil with a power but it’s true

That this flower had a history of being taboo

Still your parents took a chance and they gave it to you

Oh, Charlotte, even on that very first day

This plant kept the seizures and the pains at bay

Oh Charlotte, you came back to life

And after years in the dark there was finally light

But the plant was rare, hard to procure

Your parents found some brothers who would grow you some more

Oh, Charlotte, another birthday came

We planted a seed, we gave it your name

 

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

So beautiful to watch you grow

 

Now everybody’s lookin at Charlotte, steady growing each day

Steady out there on your bike riding with Maxwell and Chase

Now you’re out there taking hikes with a smile on your face

Beaming on the school bus, pulling away

Oh Charlotte, the word is getting around

About the power of the plant and the answers you found

Oh Charlotte, we’re gonna make you proud

We’re gonna chant your name, break the barriers down

 

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

Oh, Charlotte, Charlotte

So beautiful to watch you grow
