It's been 31 years since she's been in your arms
But don't worry about mama, mama's got a good heart
And I'm not looking for your love, I'm only snifting that bud
Just a little taste of where I came from


And now nobody move this sweeper
Is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it
And in my heart, heart, heart, there are these waters
Where I put you down to lay while I learned to live with it.
I'm too young and free

And it's been all my life, I've been wandering on the inside
What we could have had here if you would had upon in my life

And there were children involved and they were brothers to me
Even if we never got to meet
And now nobody move this sweeper
Is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it
And in my heart, heart, heart, there are these waters
Where I put you down to lay while I learned to live with it

Until I'm free at last from this shadow that hangs
Surely you wonder sometimes
But I'm sure you won't send prepares
Just what a man's to get come
But just like his daddy is gone
I just want to love someone who has the same blood, who has the same blood.

And now nobody move this sweeper
Is where I put you down to lay so I can live with it
And in my heart, heart, heart, there are these waters
Where I put you down to lay while I learned to live with it
Keepsake, the keepsake
'Till I'm free
