I do relate to you in so many ways
But I didn't you through what you must have had in those early days.
You had to be strong at such a very young age
A new life from lemonade.
So won't you listen?
To me now.
Something I never told you, that I'm about to try
See, you were my life line when the world was exploding, yeah.
You moved back in with us in the fall of 82
I fell into dark times and you were there to help me through.
You told me that a downturn would eventually improve
and you were right, so I'm thanking you.
So won't you listen?
To me now.
Something I never told you, that I'm about to try
See, you were my life line when the world was exploding
footholds eroding
Had you never been my friend,
I wouldn't be quite what you see
I wouldn't be the man I am.
-Instrumental-
Sister, you've known me
lost in a strange world.
What had it shown me?
What had it gone through?
Sister, you've known me
been lost in a strange world
But what has it shown me?
But what has it done?
October Chill in that old dust town.
Halloween came, I was still feeling down.
Mama lost my sweet tooth, what's the point in going 'round?
your boy is losing count
maybe try the lost and found.
