Mother said, don't leave me
There are monsters at the door
I put on all my armour
But I couldn't find my sword
But there'll always be tomorrow
Just you wait and see
If they come to take you prisoner
I'll be there to set you free.


Mother said, I'm grown up
In a Sunday shirt and tie
As long as I can see you
Can I hold you when I cry
There'll always be tomorrow
I'll be so big and strong
I'll sleep with all the lights out
Not afraid of anyone


I need you to stay
I need you to stay
I need you
I need you


Mother said she's sleeping
So I climbed back into bed
But the monsters took her prisoner
That's all that father said
So I thought about tomorrow
And I learned to be alone
Making friends with shadows
As they moved around my home


Mother never leaves me
I can always see her smile


I sit here in the evening
To talk to her awhile
There'll always be tomorrow
Just you wait and see
I know that any moment
She will come to set me free


I need you to stay
I need you to stay
I need you
I need you


I need you to stay
I need you to stay
I need you
I need you
