Many too many have stood where I stand
Many more will stand here too
I think what I find strange is the way you built me up
Then knocked me down again

The part was fun but now it's over
Why can't I just leave the stage?
Maybe that's because you securely locked me up
Then threw away the key

Oh mama
Please would you find the key
Oh pretty mama
Please won't you let me go free
I thought I was lucky
I thought that I'd got it made
How could I be so blind?

You said good-bye on a corner
That I thought led to the straight
You set me on a firmly laid and simple course
Then removed the road

Oh mama
Please help me find my way
Oh pretty mama
Please lead me through the next day
I thought I was lucky
Oh I thought that I'd got it made
How could I be so blind? Oh no

    General Commentto me this about the confusion felt by one sad lost brokenhearted man.
    talking of his need to carry on, finding a way out from the life he had, to the woman that abandonned him... and not to Anthony phillips
    because i have to say the 'mama' reference here ..well it might confirm that it ain't about Hackett's frustration felt among the band..and simply exclude that this is the (predictable) one subject of the song right ? :)
    ahh fans and their band's mythology.....
