leaving mother

mp3 is located here

i’ll wake up tomorrow and die a little more
that’s about all any man can do
you might raise a good son
send him off to war
he might try and die before you do

ring around the rosary i must confess
tell me your story mine is a mess

tonight i’m leaving mother
the old girl doesn't know
she’d rather pull me under
than ever let me go

i look at my sister and see another child
growing older just because she can
she had a husband he could make her smile
he became a different man

ring around the rosary i must confess
tell me your story mine is a mess

tonight i’m leaving mother
this time it’s for good
we don’t love each other. . .

tear out my tears throw them down
i don’t need them any more 
see all my dreams run away
i won’t chase them any more

tonight i’m leaving mother
the old girl doesn’t know
she’d rather pull me under
than ever let me go

tonight i’m leaving mother
this time it’s for good
we don’t love each other
even though we should
