about

A story about the pain and joy of being a mother, and a woman.

lyrics

She’s cranky and tired - She doesn’t get much sleep

Quite frankly if she were hired - It’s not a job she’d like to keep

And there’s not much room for romance - For this mother of two

The chores are never-ending and the hours too few


But a tender moment - And her hearts laid bare

A soft word spoken – She knows why she’s there.


She juggles the books - and there are papers to chase

As she struggles with her looks - There are lines to face

And sometimes when he’s unhappy - He takes out on her

She finds it hard to remember – just the way they were.


But a tender moment - And her hearts laid bare

A soft word spoken – She knows why she’s there.


She thinks about the good times when she was young and free

And she still dreams of travelling – and the star she thought she’d be.



Another dinner gone cold – he’s forgotten to phone

Crying baby to hold – another evening alone


But a tender moment - and her hearts laid bare

A soft word spoken – She knows why she’s there.

…………………………and her heart’s laid bare

A tender moment – She knows why she’s there.
