The Slackers – Anastasia lyrics

Anastasia, oh, Anastasia
Three mouths to feed, a mother's work is never done
Still I can see it in your eyes
The pain, the lies you had to hide
What you endured, you kept it inside

He deceived you
He would deceive you
Your husband's left and gone
How will you carry on
Got no parents to turn to
To make ends meet was up to you
No time for tears when there's work to do

You carried on
Through the darkness
Your dreams denied
No one by your side
To help you through
You carried on
And raised a family
Still found the strength
No one else to thank
Except for you

You're the savior
You were the savior
You toiled day and night
To make things seem alright
You worked your fingers to the bone
To make a safe and happy home
Behind closed doors you slept alone

You carried on
Through the darkness
Your dreams denied
No one by your side
To help you through
You carried on
And raised a family
Still found the strength
No one else to thank
Except for you

Oh, Anastasia, Anastasia
Forever in my heart
You know you'll always be
From time to time I think of you
What a surprise if you only knew
I'd write this song to sing for you

Oh, you carried on
Through the darkness
Your dreams denied
No one by your side
To help you through
You carried on
You raised a family
You found the strength
No one else to thank
Except for you

You carried on
Through the darkness
Your dreams denied
No one by your side
To help you through
You carried on
Raised a family
You found the strength
No one else to thank
Except for you

You carried on
You carried on
Yet, you carried on
Ooh-oh, you carried on
