Mom

Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
The wind doesn't touch me
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
I don't need money
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
Tears doesn't know me (I never cry)
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
 
Here, there is nothing but cold
Nobody looks at you (cares about you)
I didn't know how I should sit (on the cold floor)
And how I got used to the cold ass (from sitting in cold floors)
 
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
The wind doesn't touch me
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
Abroad, they don't insult me
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
Tears doesn't know me (I never cry)
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
 
Mom I miss the sun
I don't know how I could endure this $
The bird that lives in the cage
Is totally useless
 
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
The wind doesn't touch me
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
Abroad, they don't insult me
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
Tears doesn't know me (I never cry)
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
 
If the land could speak
She would have repudiated us
The welfare is poured from the skies
And yet there are who sleep in the street
 
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
The wind doesn't touch me
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
I don't need money
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
Abroad, they don't insult me
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you
Mom I lie to you, I need to lie to you

When she sings "Mom I miss the sun", it's just impossible for me not to cry!
Amazing song.
