Brian Jonestown Massacre – The Devil May Care (My Mom And Dad Don't) lyrics

Say goodbye to mom and dad
The two best friends I never had
To be knowing where I'm going,
How about you?
Give them all my love so much
I promise that I'll stay in touch
If I know where I am going
So will you
(and you too)

I've thought about so many things
It only complicates my dreams
It's keeping me from knowing what to do
Got to go I'm loosing touch
I think about you way too much
It's keeping me from knowing me or you
(or you)

    A parents love for their child is unconditional. It doesn't matter what path you take its still there. It doesn't care about anything it will always be there. The devil can't choose you, only you can choose him so he cares about your path. He wants your love. The minute you care too much about where you are going you have chosen the devil. Don't lose faith. Love is unconditional.
