MAMA

MUSIC BY BRIDE
LYRICS BY DALE THOMPSON

BIRDS HAVE THEIR NESTS
FOXES HAVE THEIR HOLES
I HAVE NO PLACE TO LAY MY HEAD
BEEN FORTY DAYS TEMPTED BY THE DEVIL
LIKE A REED SHAKING IN THE WIND

WHEELS OF TIME ARE LIKE CAFFEINE
TO PASS THIS CUP FROM ME
KNEELING ON THE TEARS THAT DROP LIKE BLOOD
MY FACE IS THE GLOW OF DESTINY

MAMMA SAY A PRAYER FOR ME

I HEARD THE DEVIL SPEAK LIKE TONGUES
AS HE LEFT THE THRONE OF GRACE
I FELT THE WISDOM OF THE AGES
BUT HE NEVER SHOWED HIS FACE

HE DANCED ON THE HEAD OF THE CROSS
LOST HIS FOOTING AND HE FELL
STOLE A KISS FROM JESUS
BURNED HIS LIPS SNOW WHITE PALE

MAMMA SAY A PRAYER FOR ME
