Mother Father
Journey Lyrics


She sits alone, an empty stare
A mother's face she wears
Where did she go wrong,
The fight is gone
Lord help this broken home

Hey, mother, father, sister
Hey, come back, tryin', believein'
Hey, mother, father, dreamer
Don't you know that I'm alive for you
I'm your sevenths son
And when lightin' strikes the family
Have faith, believe.

With dreams he tried, lost his pride
He drinks his life away
One photograph, in broken glass
It should not end this way.

Through bitter tears
And wounded years, those ties
Of blood were strong
So much to say, those yesterdays
So now don't you turn away.

Hey, mother, father, sister
Hey, come back, tryin', believein'
Hey, mother, father, dreamer

Steve Perry at his finest, heard he recorded THIS track in ONE take !!! Incredible!!

TT nNaples

Yes, Steve's parents split up, so he may have felt this very deeply.

Lourdes Quintero

Wow! My favorite.Is perfect and with a great and deep message.

elfboy

Yup, Jonathan Kane (keyboardist) confirms that he did.

Jim Mussoline

One of rock and roll's of the most beautiful and powerful songs.  If Mother, Father does not move you, you might not have a soul.

monica boyer

Probably my favorite song of all time
