At Your Weakest

lyrics

you held me in your arms before i turned into a man. i started learning how to walk before you wanted me to stand. and then you tried to keep your secrets. i always found your cigarettes. and found you weeping in your bedroom over what hadn't happened yet. you said, "it's gonna be alright..." oh, mama, i never knew that the darkness came from you. i've seen you at your weakest. you were too drunk to take us around. but you tried to grab your keys until you finally settled down. that's not the way i want to think of you. these aren't stories i should tell. i can't help but be forgiving. in the end, i guess you raised me well. i think i turned out alright. oh, father, i never knew that the darkness came from you. now i've a child of my own. pretty soon she's turning five. and when i hold her in my arms i'm just glad to be alive. she's seen me weeping in my bedroom. i say that's sometimes what i do. but i want to let it go now, mama, all the dark that came from you. oh, a, i hope that you will let your darkness come to me. let your darkness come to me...
