The saddest happiest song you'll hear about mums

lyrics

When I was younger and you'd tuck me in at night
You'd kiss my head and you would say a prayer to Jesus Christ
You were the first one to teach my hands to play
We'd sing together nearly every single day

Hey Mama thank you for the love and open arms
Hey Mama look at me I'm reaching for the stars
I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for your love
So I will tell the world how wonderful you are

I had all the answers when I was seventeen
Borrowed all my troubles from the women in the magazine
And if my teeny tiny world came crumbling down
You were always there to pick me up and
Put my feet back on the ground

Hey Mama thank you for the love and open arms
Hey Mama look at me I'm reaching for the stars
I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for your love
So I will tell the world how wonderful you are

Now I am all grown up we're living separate lives
You're still my biggest inspiration never stop making me smile
Shown me confidence how to make do on my own
Your strength and beauty is the greatest I've ever known

So when you called me on that perfect Autumn day
Didn't think I'd be flying home to hear a doctor say
You had three months and there was nothing they could do
And since that last heartbeat I've never stopped missing you.

Hey Mama thank you for the love and open arms
Hey Mama look at me I'm reaching for the stars
I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for your love
So I will tell the world how wonderful you are
