Lyrics

LONG WAY FROM YOUR HEART
Music and Lyrics by Rob Oswin

Intro.: A telephone call is screened while its intended recipient flips channels on the TV. The answering machine engages with the following: Child "Hey Frankenstein, come here!" Father "What do you want?" Child "What do you want? Father "I thought you were gonna answer the phone." Child "Bye a... Hey!, I got a idea!" Father "What?" Child ~Let's have a little dead.., blood..." Father "Party, party?" Child "Blood party!" Father "Okay, and we'll phone them back right aJter we're done?" Child "Okay!" Father "Okay" Child "Bye!" Father "Bye!"... Machine beeps and song begins.

Oh... What a darling little message! This is your Mother calling.
We're just passing through town and thought we might hook up for lunch, but we don't know where to get in touch with you. Our love to Alexis!

Take this message to my Mother,
I know I'll never find another.
STILL I was BORN to be this man.
The mirror reflection of the one who broke you heart and spoiled your plans.

But I believe I'm on a mission, a mission from you, Mom! And I believe in one condition, of unconditional love, Mom! And I do believe I stood a bit too close to his fire,
And lit this desire...

SUCH A LONG WAY FROM YOUR HEART... SUCH A LONG WAY! SUCH A LONG WAY FROM YOUR HEART... YEAH!

Mother's milk would crush my hunger.
But Father's fist has put asunder.
So boldly where no man has been,
I'll resurrect myself into the eyes of my Mother shine the light through the shadow of my Father's sin!

Cuz I believe I'm on a mission, a mission of truth, Mom!
Still I believe in superstitions, that never seem to come true, Mom! And I do believe that when I'm cold and I'm tired,
I feel inspired...

SUCH A LONG WAY FROM YOUR HEART... SUCH A LONG WAY!
SUCH A LONG WAY FROM YOUR HEART... SUCH A LONG WAY!
SUCH A LONG WAY FROM YOUR HEART... YEAH!

AND YOU SAID... "I SAW YOUR FATHER'S EYES TONIGHT!'
AND I SAID, "MOTHER, I'M JUST TOO TIRED TO FIGHT ABOUT IT,'
"SO MOTHER... I WON'T BE HOME TONIGHT."

A whiskey for your pain and sorrow. My Maryjane arrives tomorrow...
