Ben Harper – Widow Of A Living Man lyrics

Mama why does he treat me so cold why do I feel so old how long has he treated me unkind or

Have I always been so blind

I'm the widow of a living man

Why can't the times stay the same now I am begging him to change what about all the plans we

Made now I am so afraid

I'm the widow of a living man

Why does he hurt me so I'm gonna need someplace to go he's no longer some kind woman's son

Mama I think that I had better run

I'm the widow of a living man

Living ain't easy since you've been gone no one else can please me or make me feel home.

Forgetting ain't easy you stay on my mind thoughts of us haunt me can't leave them behind
