I can see
you aren't the mother who drank tea with me in the mornings,
and watched TV with me in the day
Who wore red glasses and a blue coat
& owned every Madonna CD and sang to every sound however loud she pleased.
I'm just a kid,
and I want to be able to grow up and say I love my mother
for the first 14 years of my life,
but for the rest of it, too.
I want you to see through the wall I've built
to keep you out
I want you to come home
and start things new.
I'll do all the laundry,
I'll teach myself how to cook the food
I'll hug you each day
and I won't run away
I know you're not alright in the head.
but you know things that I need help being taught,
so please don't make me have to learn them all by myself.
I love you
and I miss you
and I don't want to be angry anymore.
So please come home soon,
and let us start something new
