Lyrics

Now the dirt is washed away
And all alibis are out
And the hands that used to heal me only curse me now
The echoes of a woman so kind
Rain like waterfalls and ice-cream on my worried mind

I lay there in the puddle of myself
Fishing from a brand new wish from that bucket down the well
And in her colors I find my faith
Cause I remember every word that lady used to say

She said that hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something, leaving with nothing
But souls can save themselves
Learning to fly, sweet mother of mine!

Be a long way home without you
It's just a long way home without you
Yeah, yeah!

That's my mother, like no other
Made me human, made me brother
Hands with swelling and with blister
for my sake and my sisters
The guardian of my karma,
keep my feet on terrain firmer
And then release me like a scient to the sky!

She said that hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something, leaving with nothing
but souls can save themselves
learning to fly, sweet mother of mine
Yeah, yeah!

Sister, you've some hungry eyes
And by back you're hypnotized
Smiling faces in disguise
By back youre hypnotized
Keep going against the grain
And soon that's all, soon that's all youll know
soon that's all you'll know
And lets get this straight
Sometimes you'll rise, and theres time you'll fall
After all, you're just blood and bones
And you don't owe no one, oh
No, you don't owe no one
So don't live like one price is right
Cause there is some things in your life that you can't fight!

She said that hearts can't break themselves
Looking for something, wind up with nothing
But souls can save themselves
Learning to fly, sweet mother of mine!
of mine

She said that hearts can't break themselves,
looking for something, leaving with nothing
but souls can save themselves, learning to fly, learning to fly
she said that souls can save themselves, learning to fly, learning to fly
oh souls can save themselves, learning to fly, learning to fly
Oh momma, how I love you!
Learning to fly, learning to fly
No momma, how I love you
Learning to fly, sweet mother of mine!
be a long way home without you
mother of mine
mother of mine
