If Only Mother Could See Me Now Lyrics

by Cat Stevens

The night was long and lonely
Everything inside was warm and tranquil, hey
I took a walk along the dark
Deserted stones of some old chapel, ahh

Didn't know quite what to do
And what I knew was all behind me, hey
So with the stars above my head
I let the silence set inside me and guide me

If only mother could see me now
On the white horse silver cloud
If only daddy could see me ride
He'd be so proud of this little devil boy

I saw seas of mirror
Without a reason to remind me, hey
And all the people that I'd loved
Were searching high above to find me, so kindly

If only mother could see me now
On the white horse silver cloud
If only daddy could see me ride
He'd be so proud of this little devil boy

Ahh, if only mother could see me now
On the white horse silver cloud
If only daddy could see me ride
He'd be so proud of this little devil boy, devil boy
