Lady at the lights, young boy beside her
His silence deafening
Driving through the spotlight of her life
Now she is heard, now she is seen

Woken from his slumber
Their dance began
A lifetime's length of guilt, blame and shame
Laying at each others hands

They'd forgotten each other
They'd forgotten how to laugh
They'd forgotten how to hope and be heard
They'd forgotten how to ask

Oh brother son, oh mother numb
Weep those years of tears and set yourself free
Oh brother son, oh mother numb
Weep those years of tears and set yourself free

Bot at the light, mum beside him
Her silence deafening
Driving through the stoplight of his life
Now he is heard now he is seen

Woken from her slumber
Their dance began
A lifetime's length of guilt, blame and shame
Laying at each others hands

They'd forgotten each other
They'd forgotten how to laugh
They'd forgotten how to hold and be held
They'd forgotten how to ask

Oh mother son, oh brother numb
Weep those years of tears and set yourself free
Oh brother son, oh mother numb
Weep those years of tears and set yourself free

Oohohoo
Oohohoo
Oohooooh
Woooah
Oohoohoo
Oohoo

Christmasday sinking fast in their handmade cement nest
Their handmade cement nest
