Weary young man, rest your head
Who knows what tonight will bring?
Saddened mother, he is not dead
He just wants to spread his wings

I see her weeping now
Abruptly fallen by the bedside
And I see him crying out
Slowly dying on the inside

Don't cry tonight, my love
Don't cry tonight, my love

Transfixed upon the picture of his mother
He holds his hands inside his hand
Taken aback by the love of another
He lives by only her demands

Crying out so very softly
He screams only loud enough for her to hear
It should not be this way, nor darlin
For I have lost everything that I've held dear

Don't cry tonight, my love
Don't cry tonight, my love
All the voices inside
Are calling you, leading you to the unknown
Don't cry tonight

Voices in the shadows
Screams in the hollows
Preachers in the masses
Who will you follow?

Don't cry tonight, my love
You're alright

All the things that I have learned will stay with me forever
And as you pray for me, I feel it empower me
I'm running home today, my long-suffering mother
I know that you love me with this greater love

I'm feeling led tonight
My ever-loving mother
Know that I love you with this greater love
