Oh mother - the black dog’s back again
and I can’t feel my hands through his pain

Oh father - he’s barking up my tree again
and I can’t look at what is happening


I know you said, I know you said
Please come home
But mama, try as I might
I’m a lady in white with broken bones


Oh I need time to finish this alone
But I can’t stay the girl you used to know

So force-feed me your medicine and go
‘Cause this won’t be the happiness you used to know
You used to know


I know you said, I know you said
Please come home
But mama, try as I might
I’m a lady in white with broken bones


I don’t want to lose everything,
I don’t want to lose everything,
I don’t want to lose everything,
Everything we built together
