A poem from my personal archives.
Mama's crying
And she don't know what to say
She's lived this life before
Only seems like yesterday
And ain't it funny how the sun does hide away
Behind a black cloud
Broken promises
And an empty sea of gold
No sense of direction
Can make you feel so old
But he stays silent
Keeps doing what he's told
And ain't it funny how the sun does hide away
Behind a black cloud
Oh can't you see
What this life has done to me
On I roam
Down the rocky road to ruin
And still I see
That I'm scarred for all eternity
And ain't it funny how the sun does hide away
Behind a black cloud
