The Mother

Brandi Carlile 2019.05.21 43
Welcome to the end of being alone
inside your mind
Tethered to another
and you're worried all the time
You always knew the melody
but you never heard it rhyme

She's fair and she is quiet, Lord
she doesn't look like me
She made me love the morning
she's a holiday at sea
The New York streets are as busy
as they always used to be
But I am the mother of Evangeline

The first things that she took
from me were selfishness and sleep
She broke a thousand heirlooms
I was never meant to keep
She filled my life with color
cancelled plans and trashed my car
But none of that is ever who we are

Outside of my windows
are the mountains and the snow
I hold you while you're sleeping
and I wish that I could go
All my rowdy friends around
accomplishing their dreams
But I am the mother of Evangeline

They've still got their morning paper
and their coffee and their time
They still enjoy their evenings
with the skeptics and their wine
Oh but all the wonders I have seen
I will see a second time
From inside of the ages
through your eyes

You were not an accident
where no one thought it through
The world has stood against us,
made us mean to fight for you
And when we chose your name
we knew that you'd fight the power, too

You're nothing short of magical
and beautiful to me
I would never hit the big time
without you
So they can keep their treasure
and their ties to the machine
Cause I am the mother of Evangeline

They can keep their treasure
and their ties to the machine
Cause I am the mother of Evangeline
