  • I try to sleep as long as I can
    I pull the covers over my head
    I pray that there's some way
    That life could skip a day to Monday

    I try to count my blessings
    It's a long, long list
    For a girl who has so much
    There's so much that I miss on days like this

    I wish I could go to town, buy you a card
    That says "I love you" inside a heart
    And one that makes you laugh
    Pick you flowers from our yard
    You can set 'em in the window in a mason jar
    Dad will take our photograph
    One two three
    Smile, say cheese
    Oh I wish it could be that way
    Every mother's day

    Maybe someday I will let go
    But right now I'm still hanging on
    Maybe one day God will bless me
    With a daughter of my own
    I'll have love I've never known

    She could go to town, buy me a card
    Says "I love you" inside a heart
    One that makes me laugh
    She'll pick me flowers from our yard
    I'll set 'em in the window in a mason jar
    And dad will take our photograph
    One two three
    Smile, say cheese
    Oh I wish it could be that way
    Every mother's day

    One two three
    Smile, say cheese
    Oh I wish we could be that way
    Every mother's day Writer/s: KELLIE PICKLER, KYLE JACOBS
