I'm gonna hide if she don't leave me alone
I'm gonna run away
'cause you can never go home anymore
SPOKEN: Listen. Does this sound familiar? You wake up
every morning, go to
school every day, spend your nights on the corner just
passing the time away.
Your life is so lonely like a child without a toy.
Then a miracle-a boy. And that's
called "glad." Now my mom is a good mom and she loves
me with all her heart.
But she said I was too young to be in love and the boy
and I would have to part.
And no matter how I ranted and raved, I screamed, I
pleaded, I cried-she told me it
was not really love but only my girlish pride. And
that's called "bad."
(Never go home anymore)
SPOKEN: Now if that's happened to you, don't let this.
I packed my clothes and
left home that night. Though she begged me to stay, I
was sure I was right. And
you know something funny?? I forgot that boy right
away. Instead I remember
being tucked in bed and hearing my mama say
(Hush, little baby, don't you cry)
(Mama won't go away)
(You can never go home anymore)
I can never go home anymore
SPOKEN: Do you ever get that feeling and wanna kiss
and hug her? Do it now-
tell her you love her. Don't do to your mom what I did
to mine. She grew so lonely
in the end. Angels picked her for a friend.
And I can never go home (never) anymore
And that's called "sad."
