Johnossi – Family Values lyrics

I had a sister named Emma Missisippi
Is a river that floats in the states
Just like the memory and the wisdom of the water
Our souls were connected in so many ways
Even though we havenґt talked in a while
Iґm still waiting for the day to come when you will arrive
Iґm sorry if I ruined happy times weґve been through
But now I wonder, if I can spend my days without you and

I had a mother, and her name was Carolina
Carolina is a state in the states
I think thereґs fifty but thereґs only one mother
And she wonґt even look in my face
You know Iґd give it all to be loved by you again
But everythingґs my fault so I carry the blame
But now Iґm growing, I get older while the days pass by
Soon Iґll be dying thinking you wonґt even look me in the eyes

And itґs sad
So sad
Family values
That we had, itґs just a memory
In your mind, weґve gone bad
Thereґs no love

I had a father named Mr Engelbert
Engelbert Humperdinck sings really good
I havenґt heard him but I hear my fathers voice
Itґs in the dreams where things are like they should
I miss your love wich came naturally
Sometimes I cry, when I think about how things used to be
Well at least come and visit me for only one time
Daddy I love you but I know you wonґt pay me no mind

And itґs sad
So sad
Family values
That we had
Iґts just a memory in your mind
Weґve gone bad
Thereґs no love
No no
