Lyrics

LIFT MY HEAD

63 years in this body that you don’t know anymore
You say, “Nothing that I love looks the same
I wanna call down the golden door
To come and take me away from all that matters, cause
I’ve prayed and I’ve prayed, but my hopes have been shattered

And I can lift my head to tell you that I love you daughter
But I can’t hold on
Cause I feel that the darkness is trying to pull me under
And I don’t feel very strong.”

Mama you’re driving me crazy; why do you wanna go?
I know right now things look bad
But the Santa Ana’s are starting to blow
To bring you back to all that matters
Cause I don’t know if it’s better in the hereafter

And I can lift my head to tell you that I love you mother
And to tell you to hold on
Cause I know how the darkness is trying to pull you under
And we’ve gotta stay strong

Oh I can’t know how this must feel, I can’t know how it hurts
There’s only one who can open that door,
Greet you and let you inside
You’ll know when it’s your time, but right now it’s here you lie

I can lift my head to tell you that I love you mother
And to tell you to hold on
Cause I know how the darkness is trying to pull you under
And we’ve gotta stay strong
