Journey - Mother, Father

English

Mother, Father

She sits alone, an empty stare
A mother's face she wears
Where did she go wrong,
the fight is gone
Lord help this broken home
 
[Chorus:]
Hey, mother, father, sister
Hey, come back, tryin', believein'
Hey, mother, father, dreamer
Don't you know that I'm alive for you
I'm your seventh son
And when lightin' strikes the family
Have faith, believe.
 
With dreams he tried, lost his pride
He drinks his life away
One photograph, in broken glass
It should not end this way.
 
Through bitter tears
And wounded years, those ties
of blood were strong
So much to say, those yesterdays
So now don't you turn away.
 
[Chorus]

"This video contains content from SME. It is restricted from playback on certain sites.."

She sits alone, an empty stare
Her mother's face she wears —

LORD HELP THIS BROKEN HOME

Hey, mother, father, sister
Hey, come back, and try on believing !
Hey, mother, father, dreamer:

Don't you know that I'm alive for you —
I'm the Seventh Son

..and when lighting strikes the family:
HAVE FAITH, BELIEVE !

With dreams he tried, lost his pride
He drinks his life away
One photograph, in broken glass
It should not end this way, NO !

Through bitter tears and wounded years,
Those ties of blood were strong

So much to say, those yesterdays...
So now — don't you turn away !

Hey, mother, father, sister
Hey, come back, and try on believing !
Hey, mother, father, dreamer:

Don't you know that I'm alive for you —
I'm the Seventh Son

HAVE FAITH, BELIEVE !

Don't you know that I'm alive for you —
I'm the Seventh Son

..and when lighting strikes the family:

HAVE FAITH, BELIEVE !

HAVE FAITH,
