Mother And Child Reunion - Paul Simon





No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away, Oh, little darling of mine.
I can't for the life of me
Remember a sadder day
I know they say let it be [1]
But it just don't work out that way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away,
Oh, little darling of mine.
I just can't believe it's so,
and though it seems strange to say
I never been laid so low
In such a mysterious way
[2]
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again

But I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
[3]
When the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away,
Oh, oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away
[2]
Oh the mother and child reunion
Is only a moment away

Possible explanation:

[2] This may indicate that She became the mother of his child in a mysterious way.
[3] He seems to tell Her that She cannot keep the child.
