"Mother" as written by Kato Khandwala, Ben Phillips and Deborah Harry....
In a packed-in-leather life
I was foolish, you were right
All night rookies pass the time
Looking for somewhere to go
Shiny boots are up their thighs

Mother in the night
Calling you, calling you
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you now?
Mother's left the building
We're the missing children
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you tonight?

Mother, may I stay all night?
Lift your curfew like the light
Collars turned against the cold
I'm looking for someone to hold
In your packed-in-leather night

Mother in the night
Calling you, calling you
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you now?
Mother's left the building
We're the missing children
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you?

Now that I can't remember
I need you more than ever
Why can't we be together always?

Mother in the night
Mother in the night

Mother's left the building
We're the missing children
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you now?

Mother in the night
Calling you, calling you
Mother in the night
Where are you, where are you tonight?
