Carolyn Dawn Johnson – Some Mother's Son lyrics

She lays awake
In a silent room
Holding his picture
Washed sliver by the moon
Oceans away
He feels her sigh
So alone
In the world tonight
Freedom needs a soldier
That nameless, faceless one
A young girl's lover
A baby's father
Some mother's son
Too young to know
His daddy's gone
He hears him say
His mother must be strong
So he pretends
Like children do
He likes to stand
In his daddy's shoes
Freedom needs a soldier
A nameless, faceless one
A young girl's lover
A baby's father
Some mother's son
Freedom needs a soldier
Until the battle's won
A young girl's lover
A baby's father
Some mother's son
She closes her eyes
And sees him at three
In her mind
That's the age he'll always be
And only God
Understands her love
Now she prays
To the angels up above
Freedom needs a soldier
That nameless, faceless one
A young girl's lover
A baby's father
Some mother's son
Freedom needs a soldier
Until the battle's won
A young girl's lover
A baby's father
Some mother's son
