Daniel Romano – Middle Child lyrics

I was left alone,
A long time ago
By my mother who I never got to know
I was left alone,
A long time ago
By my mother who I never got to know
Faded memories of my life
Have been washed in whiskey nights
And I’m living at the bottom of the bottle

I’ve spent my life on a bar stool all alone
Never knowing why she sent me from my home
Was there something wrong with me?
That no one else could see
What’s the reason
Only I got turned away

[Chorus]
Mama please tell me why
You would leave just me behind
You sent me off and then you went and have my brothers
Before me, a little girl
And they’re the center of your world
Mama tell me why’d you leave the middle child?

I should’ve gone back home
And ask her to her face
But my lines become due much of a disgrace
And I got the news today
Saying mama passed away
So I’ll never know the reason I’m alone

[Chorus]
Mama please tell me why
You would leave just me behind
You sent me off and then you went and have my brothers
Before me, a little girl
And they’re the center of your world
Mama tell me why’d you leave the middle child?
Mama tell me why’d you leave the middle child?
