  • Hey Mrs. C, please don't jump
    Why not?
    Nothing is making sense anymore to me
    I don't know when I stopped making him smile
    Now the kids see me crying all the time

    From one mother to the other
    They'll never get over this for their lifetime
    All their wishes will be dashed upon those cliffs

    So let's be strong for you and me
    The night is opening
    Our angels are falling
    And they will warm us
    She asked right now right here
    I'm feeling soon, soon my dear
    Maybe Cali-California
    Maybe Cali-California

    As mothers we have our troubles
    You'll leave them with emptiness for their lifetime
    All their wishes will be dashed upon those cliffs

    So let's be strong for you and me
    The night is, it is opening
    Our angels are falling
    And they will warm, they will warm us
    She asked right now right here
    I'm feeling soon, so soon my dear
    Maybe Cali-California
    Maybe Cali-Califo- oh California

    Until then there will be starlight shining down
    For every tear and every child Writer/s: Tori Ellen Amos
