lyrics

MOTHER & CHILD
Composed & performed by HAYDEN RICHARDS
Written by HAYDEN RICHARDS & SIMON PEREIRA

VERSE 1:
Imagine all the damage
Imagine all the pain
When you left him by the wayside
And you locked your heart away
Imagine being 8 years old
Having nowhere you can call home
From the moment you were born
You were left out of love

When you gave up on him
And you sent that boy away
Did you feel anything?
Or were you numb to all the pain?

CHORUS:
Mother,
Do you know where your son is?
It’s been a long time since you’ve seen him last
To you he was nothing but a burden,
Too much to cope with
But all he wanted to be is loved

VERSE 2:
Was he asking for too much
The need for a mothers love
To encourage and build him up
Guess he was never good enough
You made him feel
Like he was nothing
Worthless and abandoned
Broken and abused

When you sent your boy away
Did you feel anything?
Are you immune to all his pain?

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Do you have any regrets?
Can you live with yourself?
Do you lose sleep at night
When you think of your child
Did you ever think to call?
Was he ever on your mind?
Do you know where he is now?
Is that boy even alive

CHORUS

CHORUS:
Mother,
Do you know where your son is?
It’s been a long time since you’ve seen him last
To you he was nothing but a burden,
Too much to cope with
But all I wanted to be is loved
