Mama

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears…


She came up from the country with a smile for everyone
She left her blue horizon just to find another home
A lonely girl who'd traveled many days
A lonely heart that could not find a way.

And she said, "Mama, it's a hard life now you're gone
Mama, it's so hard to carry on
And I feel I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
Oh Mama, it's a sad and lonely life."

A misty morning rider she came wandering through the hills
A wanderin' soul appearin' over rainy windowsills
A loser in her heart, but in her face
A smile for everyone under God's grace.

And she said, "Mama, it's a hard life now you're gone
Mama, it's so hard to carry on
And I feel I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
Oh Mama, it's a sad and lonely life."

Midnight maiden madness, what to search for in this place?
Gateway to the city, night sky shadows on her face
A lady lost in nowhere but her stare
Leaves the world, her life to start somewhere.

And she said, "Mama, it's a hard life now you're gone
Mama, it's so hard to carry on
And I feel I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near."

Mama, it's a hard life now you're gone
Mama, it's so hard to carry on
And I feel I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near...
