"Only A Mother" as written by Ben Parsons, Grenville Harrop, Jim Rhodes, Phill Anderson and Simon Aldred....
Pouring the tea with a limb
Broken clean in the struggle
Too fair an age
For this war that we wage
In the rubble

A tender old tyrant
To fend off the dawn as we sleep late
And end up here punchline
That falls to the floor
Like a dead weight

Tides will turn
And in time I'll learn to love
What only a mother could
Only a mother could

Black broken no joke
Go twos on the last smoking show me
A night laced with lies
That could cradle the cries
Of the lonely

Tides will turn
And in time I'll learn to love
What only a mother could
Only a mother could

Like a hound dog that's tailing its prey
Like a night that dissolves into day
I will conquer every heartbeat on the way

The tip of your tongue seemed to promise
Some fresh pearl of wisdom
Try as I might boy
You keep them hidden depths
Well hidden

Tides will turn
And in time I'll learn to love
What only a mother could
Only a mother could

What only a mother could
Only a mother
Only a mother
Only a mother
Only a mother
