I CANNOT BE LIKE YOU   >> Listen Now << (MP3 download 4.6MB)

I see you at the kitchen table, a cigarette in your hand
Cup of black coffee at your elbow, twist and turn your wedding band
Staring into space, wondering what it is youíve lost
Youíve let your life slip by, tell me was it worth the cost?

I cannot be like you, I cannot be like you

Youíve got to get the dinner done now, get it on the table by six
Make sure the house is neat and tidy, make sure thereís nothing left to fix
Except your broken heart that lies in pieces inside you
But you wonít take the time, thereís always something more important to do

I cannot be like you, I cannot be like you
I know that you want me to, but I canít be like you

I would rather try to fight to recover my power
Than lay awake at night wondering where my life went sour

I see you at the kitchen table, a glass of whisky in your hand
You numb the feelings when youíre able, theyíre much too hard to understand
Youíve always been a good wife, never cheated, never lied
So why canít you fill up this emptiness so deep inside?

I cannot be like you, I cannot be like you
I know that you want me to, but I canít be like you

Motherís dreams unfulfilled, just follow the tradition
Those emotions canít be felt, just say your act of contrition

I cannot be like you
I cannot be like you
I know that you want me to
But, mama, I canít be like you
