Mothers can't always help you
when you're far and feeling blue
but they'll hear your whispered cries
in the middle of the cold, lonesome night
Oh Son, I'm still a part of You.
Fathers don't always get it
as they ain't half as strong as You
but one day maybe you'll sigh
breathe deep and give it a try
Oh Daddy, I'm still a part of You.
Only you can make that change
and use that one mistake
to light a flame.
It'll help you.
Sisters don't always listen
as they walk along on a path too
but they can sure make you cry
when they look you right in the eye
Oh Brother, I'm still a part of You.
And you can make that change
use that one mistake
to light a flame
who can turn a
burned out breaking
man into a
when mothers can't come back and help you?
