  1. A Mother's Child


A Mother's child

Like an empty bottle
cast beside the road
too many lost souls
without any hope
All but forgotten
mile after mile
it’s hard to believe
he was once a mother’s child

He once was a baby
in his mother’s arms
she promised to keep him
safe from any harm
trouble at school
trouble at home
too many times
he was left all alone

Now it’s town after town
living on the edge
night after night
neath the city bridge
trouble in his head
trouble in his hands
this didn’t turn out
like anybody planned
