Mama, don’t you cry for what they told you
For what they told you
You sit and wonder why the summer’s colder
You’re one day older

Don’t you tear the brain from the peel
You sent your farewell
What’s believing? She’s leaving me under the swell
Whispers in the rain
Mama, cover me
Love me, don’t scare me again

Walk with purpose, child
Walk with grace
Just like she told you, like she told you
Kisses wash your face
Turn your heart
Only so far, don’t go too far

Yeah, you saw my hand in the drawer
Who’s behind the door?
What’s the mess and the dress and those clothes on the floor?
Grew up in the dark
Now I’m playing in places too far from the yard

Don’t you play with the way that I feel
I’m sitting on the fence
With the sun on my neck and my head in my hands
Nothing goes as planned
Nor that thing in the dark in the dust where it stands
Nor do I in the dark in the dust where I stand

Please, sing me a love song
