Oh Mother

from Pterodactyl Baby by Nehedar



oh mother watch my soul
mine is the one that don't know where to go
take it home and make it whole
before the ferry comes rowing.

oh mother watch me grow
i've been attempting it since years ago
where i'll stop i don't yet know
i know where i am not where i'm going

*chorus 1* and the wolves go howling through the night
while all my money is wasting
and if i lose you in the blackest night
would you be there later
would you be there?

oh lover you make me glow
you make me happier than you can know
trade our broken hearts for the open road
no one's loved me like you since my mother.

oh lover you work so hard
i'll check the mirrors if you count the cards
no one's gonna make us disregard
the dreams we have for one another.

* chorus 2* and there's next to nothing that i need
if my heart is open
i'm alive and i'm loved and ready
for the sky to open and the love to drip out.

oh father with the golden tones
blow new york away when you come home
travels with his six gun saxophone
makes a mean garbanzo birthday cake

i dreamt i was on a giant boat
on a riverbed
knocking lots of people over
i thought to myself why not honk the horn
i woke up and couldn't face the mirror.

*chorus 1, chorus2*
