“Momma”
Artist: Electric Light Orchestra
Albums: ELO 2 (1973)

She came up from the country with a smile for everyone
She left her blue horizon just to find another home
A lonely girl who'd travelled many days
A lonely heart that could not find a way

And she said Momma, it's a hard life now you're gone
Momma, it's so hard to carry on
And I fear I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
Oh Momma, it's a sad and lonely life

A misty morning rider she came wandering through the hills
A wandering soul appearing over rainy window sills
A loser in her heart, but in her face
A smile for everyone under God's grace

And she said Momma, it's a hard life now you're gone
Momma, it's so hard to carry on
And I fear I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
Oh Momma, it's a sad and lonely life

And she said Momma, it's a hard life now you're gone
Momma, it's so hard to carry on
And I fear I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear - oh

Midnight maiden madness, what to search for in this place
Gateway to the city, night sky shadows on her face
A lady lost in nowhere but her stare
Leaves the world, her life to start somewhere

And she said Momma, it's a hard life now you're gone
Momma, it's so hard to carry on
And I fear I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near

Momma, it's a hard life now you're gone
Momma, it's so hard to carry on
And I fear I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
