Lyrics

Where Does Mother Go?

Written By: Jane ogilvie

Where Does Mother Go? By Jane Ogilvie

CHORUS
Where does Mother go? And tell me – how am I to know
When to stay behind, and when to follow as she goes
Back into a time that’s made its way into her mind
Tell me if you know – where does my mother go?

VERSE 1

Yesterday I called. I found her pacing in the hall
Fretting ‘bout her Dad. He might be worried sick or mad
‘Cause each day as a rule she’s home right after school
So would I phone him please, and put his worried mind at ease.

CHORUS

VERSE 2

This must be a place that can’t be bound by time or space
Where logic can’t reside and what is logical – denied
Where loved ones who are gone return to carry on
And a daughter who is grown is just another friend she’s known

CHORUS

VERSE 3

I remember well who stood me up each time I fell
Who took the time to be my endless source of sanity.
How can a mind so bright just fade into the night
And why can I not be the light that she was for me?

CHORUS
