You Are Your Mother's Child Song Lyrics

Conor Oberst
Stuck in Love Soundtrack - Movie, 2013
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
You Are Your Mother's Child I remember the day you appeared on this earth
With eyes like the ocean, got blood on my shirt
From my camera angle it looked like it hurt
But your momma had a big old smile

We drove you home, saw your yellowing skin
Packed a few things and drove you back again
Stayed up all night, worrying, wondering
What was gonna make it better

Broken bones heal if you set them right
Get your fine-toothed comb from the barber’s side
Our love’s a protective poison
But you are your mother’s child
And she’ll keep you for a while
But one day you’ll be grown, then you’ll be on your own

Halloween costume, looking real cute
With your pillow case full, in your astronaut suit
Your cousin, the cowboy, he’s eyeing your loot
Better watch your Snickers bar

Out on the diamond, you’re up to bat
Chewing your Big League, adjusting your hat
Taking a swing and hearing it crack
Look at that apple fly

Well tears will dry if you give them time
Life’s a rollercoaster, keep your arms inside
Fear, that’s a big emotion
But you are your mother’s child
And she’ll keep you for a while
But soon you’ll be grown, then you’ll be on your own

Posing for pictures, cap and gown
Summer is coming, you’re driving round town
Everyone’s asking what you’re gonna do now
I know you’re gonna make a splash

Find you a sweetheart, to treat you so kind
Take her to dinner and kiss her goodnight
What I couldn’t teach you, soon you realised
She’s the only thing that matters

Although he’s a bastard, make your papa proud
You’re a fine young man and I got no doubt
That you’re gonna do this better
‘Cause you are your mother’s child
And she had you for a while
But now you are grown, you’re making it on your own
Now that you’re grown, man, you never feel this alone
