Testo my mother had a brother - george michael

My mother had a brother

They say that I was born on the day that he died

Someone to cling to
she said

When all the noises and the shame came calling



My mother had a brother

I thought I knew them all
I thought I knew

But she lied

I said
Show me his face again, tell me again why he died




She said he couldn't wait for the things that I've seen

She said he wasn't strong enough
he never dared to dream a life like mine



My mother had a brother

Over-sensitive and kind

Seems it all became too much for him..

It seems he took his own life

Mum
I can't imagine the joy and pain in equal measure

Tears in the dirt
and all over your newborn treasure



I guess he had to wait until my momma had me

I guess he couldn't wait another moment to be free

In endless sky.....



But mama will you tell him from your boy

The times they changed

I guess the world was getting warmer

And we got stronger

Mother will you tell him about my joy

I live each day for him

The sun came out
yeah
and I'm just breathing it in



[breathing...]



My mother had a brother

Same desire
different time

Seems the empty spaces tortured him

Until he took his own life



I don't know why I waited so long for love

I just don't know what I was thinking of..

All that wasted time



But mama will you tell him from your boy

The times they changed

I guess the world was getting warmer

While we got stronger

Mother will you tell him about my joy

I live each day with him

Your son came out
yeah


And I'm still breathing it in



And I swear now that freedom is here

I'm gonna taste it all for you boy

I'm ba
