Back to Before MOTHER

There was a time



Our happiness seemed never-ending

I was so sure

That where we were heading was right

Life was a road

So certain and straight and unbending

Our little road

With never a cross road in sight

Back in the days

When we spoke in civilized voices

Women in white

And sturdy young men at the oar

Back in the days

When I let you make all my choices...

We can never go back to before

There was a time

My feet were so solidly planted

You'd sail away

While I turned my back to the sea

I was content,

A princess asleep and enchanted

If I had dreams

Then I let you dream them for me

Back in the days

When everything seemed so much clearer

Women in white

Who knew what their lives held in store

Where are they now,

Those women who stared from the mirror?

We can never go back to before.

There are people out there

Unafraid of revealing

That they might have a feeling

Or they might have been wrong

There are people out there

Unafraid to feel sorrow

Unafraid of tomorrow

Unafraid to be weak..

Unafraid to be strong!

There was a time

When you were the person in motion

I was your wife,

It never occurred to want more

You were my sky

My moon and my stars and my ocean

We can never go back to before

We can never go back to before
