lyrics

Mother

Mother please come home
Father is missing you so
All I can hear is that he is crying
I know you made sure
never to be found again

Never a woman who needed a home
A shiphand, a husband or a son
And when you were all alone
You used to sing your song to your soul

You're a nomad
You are a shaman
Your trade it was in this land
And your ship was always bound
For a different shore
A foreign land

Children throwing stones
You took them in and you set all their bones
Wrapped them in some dirty cloth
Gave them some water
Then just set them off

Mother please come home
Father is missing you so

They are tales of sailors of loss and love, they are tales of the sea. ... more
