Prodigal Daughter by Aoife ODonovan


[Verse 1]
Oh, now Rosie
You come home in the morning
Got a child on your knee and your mother, she looks on
Says “I don’t know that baby
Don’t know you, why’d you fail me?
You left home seven years ago and I wore black for days.”
[Chorus]
Prodigal daughter returns like a lamb to the slaughter
I know forgiveness won’t come easy, not for you
Look at the child upon my knee
She has eyes of blue
She resembles me resembling you
[Verse 2]
Mama, listen
Come into the kitchen
Pour me some tea, let mе sit at your feet and let me cry
I need a little monеy
I need love, and I need Sunday suppers here at home
Don't want to be alone, let me stay
[Chorus]
Prodigal daughter returns like a lamb to the slaughter
She yearns for the things that you taught her
I know forgiveness won’t come easy, not for me
But I’ll try to shut the past behind us, throw out the key
Give me one more chance to make you see
[Chorus]
Prodigal daughter returns like a lamb to the slaughter
Looking for something in the water
To wash away the the pain
She’s drowning in the pain
