  • WHERE THE HEART IS
    Atmospheres are tense today
    Mother and father are rowing again
    Silently seated around the table
    You're the one that's getting the blame
    Father looks at you like a snake
    You play with the food upon your plate
    No one seems to be on your side
    Things that threaten to hurt your pride

    Mother loves to be concerned
    Using lessons that she learnt
    Fathers never understand
    When children have the upper hand

    Smiling you did your time at school
    Crying quietly like a fool
    Saturday night and Sunday morning
    Did all the things they asked you to do
    They say that home is where the heart is
    But home is only where the hurt is
    Pull the wool over the eyes
    Forget the worries that you started

    Mother loves to be concerned
    Using lessons that she learnt
    Fathers never understand
    When children have the upper hand

    When you stayed out every night
    The first time from your parent's sight
    They started to show some concern
    But by then it was too late
    Feel it's time to pull away
    Shut your ears to all they say
    Be yourself you know it's true
    When in the end what's left is you

    Mother loves to be concerned
    Using lessons that she learnt
    Fathers never understand
    When children have the upper hand
