Smaller Than My Mother

from by Overcoats

about

Smaller Than My Mother is about the way a relationship can make you shrink. We are in awe of our mothers, who managed to stay solid.

lyrics

He makes me smaller with every embrace that I ask for
Sit between the sheets of paper he writes on and I
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same

Keeps every dollar he earns under his pillow while he sleeps
Fits me in the palm of his hand and I'm restless oh
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same
I keep on shrinking and he stays the same

He's gonna make me watch him leave
I've done all the things that he asked of me
He makes me fall makes me fall to my knees
Smaller than my mother, he looks down on me
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Used up all of my words, I can’t read him anymore
