holy mother lyrics – eric clapton

holy mother, where are you?
tonight i feel broken in two.
i’ve seen the stars fall from the sky.
holy mother, can’t keep from crying.

oh i need your help this time,
get me through this lonely night.
tell me please which way to turn
to find myself again.

holy mother, hear my prayer,
somehow i know you’re still there.
send me please some peace of mind;
take away this pain.

i can’t wait, i can’t wait, i can’t wait any longer.
i can’t wait, i can’t wait, i can’t wait for you.

holy mother, hear my cry,
i’ve cursed your name a thousand times.
i’ve felt the anger running through my soul;
all i need is a hand to hold.

oh i feel the end has come,
no longer my legs will run.
you know i would rather be
in your arms tonight.

when my hands no longer play,
my voice is still, i fade away.
holy mother, then i’ll be
lying in, safe within your arms.
