lyrics

Could you be my mother
And I your son
I’ll love you like no other
Until the other she has come
She has come

Linen light memories
You’re my tall and dark sentry

Let me stay
Here with you
Until we both
Know what to do

And it goes on and on and on and on and on
She keeps saying hold on hold on
But for how long
how long

When it goes on and on and on and on and on
Don’t know if they’re gone, they’re gone
He says they’re gone
so long

The light of your eyes
Escapes me
Trying to hold on tight to the memories

Let me stay
Here with you
Until we both
Know what to do

And it goes on and on and on and on and on
She keeps saying hold on hold on
But for how long, how long

When it goes on and on and on and on and on
Don’t know if they’re gone, they’re gone
He says they’re gone
Please don’t be wrong

You can be my mother
And I your son
Don’t you disappear
And I won’t ever run
I won’t ever run
I won’t ever run
I won’t ever run
Just tell me when it’s won
Swear I won't ever run
I won’t ever run
You’re my golden sun
