lyrics

Verse 1:
I prayed don’t go
But it didn’t work
I couldn’t let you go
And all I did was hurt
And after you left me
I couldn’t move on
And I couldn’t sleep
I just wouldn’t eat
I couldn’t figure out
Why the hell
this was happening

Hook 1:
To such a good person
To such a caring loving mom
To someone anyone so young
But I guess that’s the way it goes
Even though I reject that statement whole
And it kills me that I’ll never know
What she could have been
and how she would have grown

Chorus:
I just wanna cry sometimes
Some days I just wanna die
But not tonight I’ve gotta fight
I’ve gotta keep my moms smile alive
And lord knows that I’ve got her eyes
And I’ve been so blessed in my life
And it’s all thanks to her
I still feel her by my side

Link:
Mama, mom I love you

Verse 2:
I cried the whole way home
the day she left
I had to be alone
that is what I said
Cause I was so upset
I couldn’t get up out of bed
I would hear her voice
running through my head
Until I would fall asleep again

Hook 2:
I’ve gotta know how could this happen
To such a caring loving person
To someone anyone so young
But I guess that’s the way it goes
Even though I hate that statement whole
And it kills me that I’ll never know
What she could have been
and how she would have grown

Chorus:
I just wanna cry sometimes
Some days I just wanna die
But not tonight I’ve gotta fight
I’ve gotta keep my moms smile alive
And lord knows that I’ve got her eyes
And I’ve been so blessed in my life
And it’s all thanks to her
I still feel her by my side

Link:
Mama, mom I love you

Chorus:
I just wanna cry sometimes
Some days I just wanna die
But not tonight I’ve gotta fight
I’ve gotta keep my moms smile alive
And lord knows that I’ve got her eyes
And I’ve been so blessed in my life
And it’s all thanks to her
I still feel her by my side
