Like Mama Had

lyrics

There’s no use trying
There’s too much to do
I mean, living ain’t livin’
For me or my crew
Night shifts at diners
Across town to open your store
We spend all our time getting by
There’s no time for anymore
Yet you call us selfish,
Say we got it easy today
But if we had something to spare
We’d give it all away

There’s no use getting’ up
It hurts when we fall
Ain’t no one around here
To lean on at all
We don’t need your diamonds
We don’t need your gowns and black ties
Don’t need a thing that you’ve got;
We’ve just got to get by
I know you hear us
We don’t expect your hand
All that we ask is a spot upon the ground when we stand

Like Mama had

Never were islands
Mama would know
For she made the oceans
She knows deeper and deeper they go
Strange accusations
Disconnected from the plan
You can’t see the ground for the dirt
Can’t see the soul for the man
Although we have fought
Still I need you
I pray one day you’ll have the thought
The thought that you need me too

Like Mama did
