lyrics

He said I have your smile.
Well, for a while, you took it away.
You said you’re grieving a loss;
It wouldn’t have cost much for me to stay.

Don’t bring god’s name to your false claims.

Mother Mary did not raise me
Mother Mary did not save me
Mother Mary ain’t my family
Mother Mary did not save me

I tried to give you a chance,
To alter your stance,
And spare me this pain,
But you remained unbending,
It’s no use mending esteem with disdain

I can’t hate you, but I want to.
