I steal a look between the blinds I unwind she sleeps in comfort in my arms She is plain but she is mine Our child is silent but awake I run my hands through his hair I teach him manners and how to stick up For himself when things get bad
I tell him son never through the first punch And If you must fight, make it clean
SHIOLA, SHIOLA, will all be forgiven? SHIOLA, SHIOLA, Am I strong enough to start again alone?
The taste of home is filling up my mouth Is it wrong to love a family of ghost Her door is open the windows are all up She says "come inside"
I live alone more or less I summon, child and happiness Build them up from the dirt and clay I have to believe that all will be forgiven
SHIOLA, SHIOLA, will all be forgiven? SHIOLA, SHIOLA, am I strong enough to start again alone? SHIOLA, SHIOLA, my heart is overflowing SHIOLA, SHIOLA, with love and anger coiled into one They take and take But never get their fill I try and try But fail against my will I wait and wait for that hand to sweep me up And take me down that road
