Lyrics

Before her drug was romance
Now she's all messed up on love
But the music never goes away
Her boyfriend do who he pleases
And loved ones warn her but she says
"Go away mom, I'm going to love him
Yes he's worthy, no I'm not above him"
Before she used to write dirges
Now she's a mommy of four
But the music never goes away
Her anchors cry for attention
Her husband laughs until she says
"Go away hon, I'm going to do this"
But her poems all turn into to-do lists
And they all come first
And she doesn't know why
Everything she starts never ends
And we haven't heard her song in so long
And she's wasting away to nothing good
She's wasting away to nothing good
Her child sang angelically
Now she's rebellious and numb
She's a chip off the proverbial block
A mother cries "don't follow me"
A daughter screams back in her face
"Go away mom, I'm going to love him
Yes he's worthy, no I'm not above him"
And they'll all come first, just like she did
And she'll never know why
Everything she starts never ends
And we haven't heard her song in so long
And she's wasting away to nothing good
She's wasting away to nothing good
She needs something to bring her out
We need something to bring us out
