Repetitions

He has to move back in
Past ties have been cut
My mother is stuck
She loves her baby
But, he’s breaking her heart

One job kept for a month
Two more for a week, that makes three
My mother is stuck
But she loves her baby
But, he’s breaking her heart

He tells me he hears voices
I tell him he needs help
My mother is stuck
She loves her baby
But, he’s breaking her heart

A disappearing act again
Where are my earrings, my necklace, my watch?
My mother is stuck
She loves her baby
But, he’s breaking her heart

He admits the worst
What we already assumed
His love is the needle
And he’s fully consumed

My mother is stuck
She loves her baby
But, he’s broken her heart
