Daniel Romano - Middle Child

by Daniel Romano

I was left alone,
A long time ago
By my mother who I never got to know
Faded memories of my life
Have been washed in whiskey nights
And I'm living at the bottom of the bottle

I've spent my life on a bar stool all alone
Never knowing why she sent me from my home
Was there something wrong with me?
That no one else could see
What's the reason
Only I got turned away

Mama please tell me why
You would leave just me behind
You sent me off and then you went and have my brothers
Before me, a little girl
And they're the center of your world

Mama tell me why'd you leave the middle child?

I should've gone back home
And ask her to her face
But my lines become due much of a disgrace
And I got the news today
Saying mama passed away
So I'll never know the reason I'm alone

Mama please tell me why
You would leave just me behind
You sent me off and then you went and have my brothers
Before me, a little girl
And they're the center of your world
Mama tell me why'd you leave the middle child?
Mama tell me why'd you leave the middle child?
