Mother

MOTHER

A little baby, a little cradle
A little abandonment of the hands
Left your mind weak, left me starving for your love
When there's food on the table you still demand

The painful thoughts are beginning to drag me down
Will this phase ever end?
A thousand arms to hold me
But I never saw yours
Since

I don't feel like I'm getting through to you
Let me write these words, life passes you, my mother
See your daughter here, her past painful years
I wish you only knew...
She stuck around for you
I stuck around for you

Maybe you should just see her fall
Life never offered you anything, after all
And if that's what you need
To finally know
I’m leaving you to fall

Bring on the pills, take your next hit
Using drugs as a way to heal
Smoke, Lose me, repeat
Never thinking about the family

9 years and Divorced, leaves you to fall down in therapy
More, more drug abuse being used is all you want to be
and becomes all of what you need
Please, stop this now like I know you should


Since

I don't feel like your life is getting anywhere
Let me write these words, life passes you by, my mother
See your daughter here, her past painful years
I wish you only knew...
She stuck around for you
She stuck around hurting for you

Maybe you should just fall
And leave the world and lose it all
And if that's what you need
To finally see
I'll be with you through it all (I'll be with you through it all)

I can't stand to see you anymore
Your letting me hit the ground
Sober, with an alcoholic mind
But hurry hurry, Oh Mercy, Mother, Mother
I can't bear to hear the sound
Of the sirens, with the combination of you unconsciously dead on the ground
Oh,, Mother, Mother

I stuck around for you (I Don’t need you)
I tried telling myself I’ll be better off without you

Since

Maybe you should just see me fall
I’ll Leave the world and lose it all
If that's what you need
To finally see, I Loved you through it all​
x2

and now I'll be hurting through it all, without a mother, a mother in need.
