A black and white photograph 
Of me up the garden path 
Wrapped up in my football scarf 
It sits here in my hand 
And there mother smothered me 
And how she would mother me 
She knew how to suffer me 
Like all mothers can 
Now she is everywhere 
The comb that runs through my hair 
My posture on a chair 
But that's not who I am 
He ran from the arguments 
And sat on the garden fence 
And lived in the passing tense 
That fell from her lips 
He tended the house so well 
And each time she rang his bell 
He'd climb back from where he fell 
And gathered his wits 
Now I fear the mold is mine 
A vibration shakes my spine 
As I walk the crooked line 
Reality hits 

So let me walk free from you 
You know that you want me to 
Let me try something new 
Let me walk away 

If it's not one thing it's your mother 
How I love her 
How I love her 
How I love her 
But it's not so easy to say 
Please won't you let me walk away 
Let me walk away 
Let me walk away 

So let me walk on my own 
And finish my ice cream cone 
If we are to make it home 
Then all will be well 
Look see I'm a father now 
I'm raising my own eyebrow 
And being in my own row 
And making life hell 
This is me, see here I am 
Doing the best that I can 
This life has a subtle plan 
But you couldn't tell
