A long way from home

Motherless child

Sometime I feel
Like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
And sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
A long…long way…from home

And sometimes I feel
Like I’m almost gone
Sometimes I feel
Like I’m almost gone
Sometimes I feel
Like I’m all alone
A long…a long way from home

C’mon, C’mon
Who’s got a shoulder when I need to cry
I feel restless and I don’t know why
Cry for help, but still feel alone
Like a motherless child along way from home
Lord I’m lost I can’t find my way
I’m dealing with the struggles in my day to day
My soul is weak and I wanna be strong
I try to run away but I’ve been running to long

I’ve been running to long…
I’ve been running to long

Who’s got a shoulder when I need to cry
I feel restless and I don’t know why
Cry for help, but I still feel alone
Like a motherless child along way from home
Lord I’m lost I can’t find my way
I’m dealing with the struggles in my day to day
My soul is weak and I wanna be strong
I try to run away but I’ve been running to long

I’ve been running to long…
I’ve been running to long
Like a motherless child
So lost and so long
Like a motherless child
