I woke up when I was 22
My mother said to me, what will you do?
She woke up when she was 48
I never asked her, why did you wait?


I messed up when I was 17
Karma has a way of coming clean


'Cause if my father hadn't loved her
Then my God what would my mother have become
And if my brother hadn't fought it
Then my sister wouldn't turn and run
So go on let him leave, go on let him leave we said
'Cause if I ever have a lover like my father had my mother
I will say
Let me go, let me go


If he wakes up before the year is out
He'll rid his sons and daughters of their doubt
And in the light of your tired eyes
Your tears will speak of love and better times


'Cause if my father hadn't loved her
Then my God what would my mother have become
And if my brother hadn't fought it
Then my sister wouldn't turn and run
So go on let him leave, go on let him leave we said
'Cause if I ever have a lover like my father had my mother
I will say
Let me go, let me go
