Oh mother Im fine, I seldom get down
At least not for a day
Oh mother Im fine, not for some time
Have I been in pain
Oh mother the time, wont wait for us now
We can't wait in vain
Oh mother don't cry, well try to get by
Well try to be brave
Got a feeling coming round
Holding me down
Ive got a hold of you
So open
Oh mother you called, your voice hangs above
The fog in my brain
Oh mother the time, mother the time
Might tick for me now
Oh mother the pain, is part of the joy
And that is the deal
Oh mother Im fine, Im blinking in time
To block out the fear
Got a feeling coming round
Holding me down
Ive got a hold of you
So open
Im feeling so alive
