"Mother's Eyes" as written by and Jack/cook Russell....
Slowly she turns away
Oh, don't look anymore
There's only stillness
No more air can he draw
No time to say goodbye
No last little kiss
No life where bullets fly
And now it comes to this
What's left in her world
The child's gone
Softly she whispers
Where did I go wrong
My future, my baby
Tell me what's goin' on
No light in mother's eyes
Nothing you can say
No reason for the whys
She'll ask every day
What's left for the world
The child's gone

    Song MeaningThis song is about a mother whose child has died.

    Slowly she turns away / Oh, don't look anymore (She sees the body of her child)
    There's only stillness / No more air can he draw (The child isn’t breathing, he’s dead)

    No time to say goodbye / No last little kiss
    No life where bullets fly / And now it comes to this (The child died because he was shot)

    What's left in her world / The child's gone (The mother has nothing left to live for without her child)

    Softly she whispers / Where did I go wrong (She blames herself for the child’s death)
    My future, my baby / Tell me what's goin' on (She’s confused about what will become of her life now)

    No light in mother's eyes / Nothing you can say (She seems to be lifeless and nothing anyone says will make her feel otherwise)
    No reason for the whys / She'll ask every day (She will never know why her child died)

    What's left in her world / The child's gone (The mother has nothing left to live for without her child)


    When I hear this song I think about the school shots that happen all too often. But the age of the child is never mentioned so he could be older than assumed. If he is older, his death could be gang related or even a random act of violence.
