You watch my broken smile,
In fright, you hold me like I'm Fragile.
Standing here aside flaming red leaves you whisper "My Darling Daughter"
With my lungs cold, wet air, I breathe your words in.
I belong, I belong to you alone.
You read my thoughts, you know every bone.
Dreams of separation, your true nightmare.
In the car, a gift from you, I drive away.
You've purchased the distance
No matter the words you say
No matter the time until the day
No matter your resistance
My Darling Mother, in your dreams I will stay.
