Mother’s Gone
Lyrics (cc)BY D A Ayer 2017-09-22

Please turn out the kitchen light
when you come tip-toe home so late at night.
And don’t neglect to lock the door.
There’s no one pickin’ up ‘round here no more

Don’t wait up to be tucked in.
This time you’re really on your own again.
There’s no one coming back to take your hand.
Mother’s gone.

She never thought that it would end this way,
that her body’d keep on going while her mind just slipped away.
Mother’s gone.
Yes, Mother’s gone.

She’s wandered on ahead just like a little child
into the old dark wood where the fairy tales run wild.
She’s taken only scraps of paper scribbled with some names
that she thought sounded nice once, long ago.
Yes, Mother’s gone.
Mother’s gone.

So sit beside her, hold her hand.
It isn’t she who needs to understand.
And if some of her love is left in you today
you might just let it back the other way.
She’ll soon be gone
and you’ll be left

Yes, Mother’s gone…
