Never Let Me Go Again

NEVER LET ME GO AGAIN

(E. Hale – T. Bejoian)
There are sounds in the hallways and thuds on my wall
I can still feel the scorching heat from those evening brawls
When you left me in that room you never made a sound
I stood their stranded as my tears came pouring down
I remember the whispers muttered in the night
Cries from the rooms and doctors cloaked in white
You stood there in the doorway a look was on your face
Like you were being blessed with this sad and sudden grace
Let me fall into your arms tonight
I wanna sink down low and feel you hold me tight
You took me in your arms once and you could understand
Don’t you ever let me go again
You struggled for me I know for a better life
You’ve worked so many hours and so many nights
And then I went away from you into the Deep South
Hoping that its heat would burn my demons out
You’ve had enough I think you’re gonna crack
My father went away and I don’t think he’s coming back
And now you put me down each and every day
But can you remember mom that it is never/not to late
In front of the house I waited for a sign
Something that would let me know that it was gonna be alright
But now I’m older and things still look the same
Look at us momma we’re still drenched in pain
So take me in your car and we will slowly drive
Through those tunnels and those backstreets of our lonely lives
Let me fall into your arms tonight
I wanna sink down low and feel you hold me tight
You took me in your arms once and you could understand
Don’t you ever let me go again
Momma promise you won’t let me go
Momma promise me that now you know
That I never want you to ever let me go again
