Rina Sawayama – Send My Love To John Lyrics

Rina Sawayama – Send My Love To John Lyrics

Cross the border in the summer of ’73
Left my mother to go after the American Dream
Ooh, threw away my name
Ooh, it’s easier when it sounds the same

All I ever wanted was for you to have a better chance
Go to college, find a good girl that you take to a dance
Ooh, pictured you with her
Ooh, but that was never who you were

And I’m sorry for the things I’ve done
A misguided love to my only son
Trying to protect you but I guess I was wrong
So send my love, send my love to John

Saw the way the kids treated you everyday at school
I should’ve blamed them but instead I hid behind the Bible’s rules
Ooh, prayed to God about
Ooh, but all you needed was my love

And I’m sorry for the things I’ve done
A misguided love to my only son
We had both had to leave our mothers to get the things we want
So send my love, send my love to John (Ooh)
Ooh, John

And I see that he takes care of you
From the food he makes, he’s there for you
In all the ways I never was, ooh

And I’m sorry for the things I’ve done
A misguided love to my only son
But I love to see you happy
And right where you belong
So send my love
Oh, send my love
Send my love to John
