I don't want to sleep with you I don't need the passion too I don't want a stormy affair To make me feel my life is heading somewhere All I want is the comfort and care Just to know that my woman gives me sweet Mother love
I've walked too long in this lon'ly time I've had enough of this same old game I'm a man of the world They say that I'm strong But my heart is heavy and my hope is gone.
Out in the city And the cold world outside I don't want pity Just a safe place to hide Mama please let me back inside
I don't want to make no waves You can give me the love that I crave I can't take it if you see me cry I long for peace before I die All I want is to know that you're there You're gonna give me all your sweet Mother love
My body's sching but I can't sleep My dreams are all the company that I keep Such a feeling as the sun goes down Coming home to my sweet Mother love
