Martha

Album: All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu (2010)
  • Martha it's your brother calling
    Time to go up north and see mother,
    Things are harder for her now
    And neither of us is really that much older than each other
    Anymore

    Martha it's your brother calling
    Have you had a chance to see father?
    Wondering how's he doing and
    There's not much time for us
    To really be that angry at each other
    Anymore.

    It's your brother calling Martha
    It's your brother calling Martha
    Please call me back.

    I know how it goes
    You gotta ring your little finger,
    Hit the tree and see what falls
    And make the sun come out
    On Sunday afternoon.

    All the while you heat the plates
    And serve a little wine
    And wear a hat and make 'em laugh
    And forget that there is nobody
    In the room
    Anymore

    It's your brother calling Martha
    Its your brother calling Martha
    Please call me back Writer/s: RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
