Ribbon Road lyrics

Forever Amen

When families break so do hearts, but being somebody’s mother or somebody’s dad stays forever

Forever Amen

Somebody's mother and somebody's dad
It's never forgotten, the children you've had
Other things can take over and times can get strange
But I'm still broken-hearted, some things never change

You can try to get over it, under it, round it
But you'll never be free from the moment you found it
They're all made of two, you can see in their ways
They wish love had lasted, that it all could have stayed

Somebody's mother and somebody's dad
We've all moved along from the lives that we had
If we could forgive for what we've never had
Somebody's mother and somebody's dad

Chorus
And who in the world would want love to break
But the feeling's still there every day when I wake
And I can't make it better 'cos tears have been shed
And dreaming's for ever and ever Amen

We can all count our blessings and settle for less
And we do every day, we keep trying, and yet
The flowers in the field aren't a patch on the faces
Of those you brought into the world

Somebody's mother and somebody's dad
It's never forgotten, the children you've had
Other things can take over and times can get strange
But I'm still broken-hearted, some things never change

Chorus
And who in the world would want love to break
But the feeling's still there every day when I wake
And I can't make it better 'cos tears have been shed

And dreaming's for ever and ever and ever
dreaming's for ever and ever Amen
dreaming's for ever and ever and ever
dreaming's for ever and ever Amen
