My Name Can't Be Mama
- 87 Views
Things are gettin' better but right now it's not looking great My ceiling still is spinning from a night that went too late I used to sleep this off and let the shame just melt away But not for tiny feet in hallways calling out my name It's not that I don't love you, I wouldn't touch the hands of time It's not that I don't long to feel your tiny hand in mine I'm not a perfect woman, Lord, I don't wish it all away My name can't be Mama today Today I didn't listen to the voice inside my head I peeled out of the driveway left my family in bed Know it wouldn't be easier to just quit the road and stay home I'd lose myself inside the halls, unsatisfied and alone Sometimes all I want is to run back to you at night To rock you to sleep, to keep the blues out of your eyes I'm not the kind of woman that would throw it all away But my name can't be Mama today I drive my mother crazy out here traveling the world Free-wheeling in the city, I'm a solitary girl I'm living in the moment, knowing there might come a day But my name can't be Mama today, uh-uh It's not that I don't want to, I just don't want to today I'm not a fan of mornings and I love my chardonnay No, I'm not saying never, I won't wish it all away But my name can't be Mama today, oh no My name can't be Mama today
