Mama I'm hurtin' in the worst way
I got no money in my pockets, got no place to stay
And when I see you out in the streets,
Never know what to say
Ah but it doesn't matter mama, if you always look the other way.
Mama I'm searching every night and day
I'm looking for the means to pay
For all the wrongs that I've done, for the nights I left you along the way
Ah but I'm always gonna owe you, if you always look the other way.
I've been a fool I know,
I'm trying to find a way to show you
That you're the only one, baby, the only one I'll ever want
So I'm learning, learning to be a better man
I'm not certain but I think I can now
But if I fall short just know
I've done all I can do to change
But you're never gonna notice if you always look the other way
Mama you're never gonna notice if you always look the other way.
