lyrics

I N H I S I M A G E : WHEN I SEE PAIN ON MY MOTHER'S FACE / EVERY CREASE CARVED IN BY HIS MALAISE / WELL, I CAN'T HELP BUT STUTTER AND LOSE MY PLACE / NO, I DON'T WANNA LOOK LIKE HIM TODAY / WHEN I AM TOLD WHAT A MAN SHOULD SAY / AND I HEAR ABOUT HOW HE WAS SO GREAT / WELL, I THINK THAT I'D RATHER I LOSE MY WAY / WHEN I'M TOLD THAT I HAVE TO GROW UP TO BE BRAVE / DON'T BE LIKE YOUR MOTHER, DON'T CRY OR COMPLAIN / AND ALWAYS BE SURE TO BE PROUD OF YOUR NAME / WHY SHOULD I'VE BEEN MADE IN HIS IMAGE? WHY SHOULD I'VE BEEN MADE SO TIMID? WHY MUST I THINK, EVERY TIME I BLINK, OF HOW I HAVE HIS EYES? WHEN I TRY TO BE GOOD, WHERE HE TURNED AWAY / WELL, IT'S HARD WHEN MY MOTHER, ALONE IN BED, LAYS / AND SHE LOOKS ON AT ME WITH THAT DISTANT GAZE
