Childless Mother

from by Smith & Jones

/

about

A soul searching but ultimately optimistic song about growing up, letting go of long-held beliefs and learning how to love.

lyrics

There’s a light here inside
I don’t kow who lit it
Dark gives way to a new beginning

I am a childless mother
I am a childless mother

Loves raises a question inside my soul
Do you run, do you hold on
Or do you let it fall

I am a childless mother
I am a childless mother

And everything I am
They’re just a holy lie
They’re a holy lie

And all these broken hearts
They’re just a waste of time
They’re a waste of time
Mmmhm

Can you reach out and touch me
Can you take my hand?
I’m willing to jump
But I’m afraid to love, afraid to love again

I am a childless mother
I am a childless mother
I am a godless daughter
I am a childless mother

And everything I am
They’re just a holy lie
They’re a holy lie

And all these broken hearts
They’re just a waste of time
They’re a waste of time
Mmmhm
A waste of time
Mmmhm

There’s a light here inside
I don’t kow who lit it
Dark gives way to a new beginning
