Like a Motherless Child
by Moby

Album: Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt (2017)
  • Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    So far from home

    This was life and this was safer
    All was strange and always stranger
    I laid in hate but so much later
    I'm never safe from all this danger
    The demon's eyes and demon satyr
    I was bait but what would bait her?
    Don't know my needs, don't know my ways so
    I hide my face, no way to face her
    This was loss, this was name
    This was my truth, this was no game
    This was not hope, this was not sane
    And from these broken places made
    That was loss and this was later
    I wanted less but nothing greater
    I couldn't leave, I couldn't stay
    Like a motherless child

    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    So far from home

    This was loss and this was later
    Always hate but never hate her
    I laid in wait but so much later
    And never safe from all this danger
    The demon's eyes, the demon satyr
    I was bait, but what would bait her?
    Don't know my needs, don't know my ways so
    I hide my face, no way to face her
    This was loss, this was name
    This was my truth, this was no game
    This was not hope, this was not sane
    And from these broken places made
    That was loss and this was later
    I wanted less but nothing greater
    I couldn't leave, I couldn't stay
    Like a motherless child

    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
    So far from home
    So far from home
