lirik lagu ailbhe reddy – somebody’s daughter


[verse 1]
we were born from sea
why are we alive
to pick from a leaf
did we recede
don’t remember then

we are not our parents
my mother married when she was twenty-three
she, she grew up in the country
smoked cigarettes on balconies
since i stare over cities
doesn’t love me

my mother lives back by the water
she was always to be somebody’s wife
somebody’s daughter

[verse 2]
imagine me, three for three
holding her hand by the sea
my father would’ve raised ten children
she grows up in the reader garden
forests to breathe

imagine me, three for three
helping her find seeds
it all grows upwards
