  • Hey mom, I know
    We're getting old
    And the lines on our hands have changed
    But you still look at me the same

    Hey Mom, guess what?
    You're really tough
    And I know you did all you could
    Just to make sure my life was good

    Sorry for the fights and the tone of my voice
    Sorry for the nights when I made the wrong choice
    Life is flying by and it's hitting me now
    I hope it's not but

    If this is the last time please come close
    I love you with all my heart, you know
    I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
    If this is the last time
    Then let's do the things we always do
    Like go to the mall and buy some shoes
    I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
    If this is the last time

    Hey dad, what's up?
    Miss you so much
    Yeah, the shade of your hair is changed
    But I look up to you the same

    Taught me how to fish, taught me how to ride a bike
    Taught me how to love, how to treat a woman right
    Life is flying by and it's hitting me now
    I hope it's not but

    If this is the last time please come close
    I love you with all my heart, you know
    I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
    If this is the last time
    Then let's do the things we always do
    Like go for a drive or watch the news
    I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
    If this is the last time

    Hey you, sit back
    Don't go so fast

    If this is the last time please come close
    I love you with all my heart, you know
    I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
    If this is the last time
    So let's do the things we always do
    Or maybe we try something brand new
    I don't wanna cry, I'm bad at goodbye
    If this is the last time

    If this is the last time
    If this is the last time
    Oh
    If this is the last time
    If this is the last time
    If this is the last time
    Oh
    If this is the last time Writer/s: Dan Smyers, Jake Goss, Jordan Reynolds, Les Priest, Paul Jason Klein, Sasha Sloan

  • Gina from Seoul, South KoreaI was enjoying my favorite song ‘DNA’ having lunch, then I had to stop eating when I heard this song…… Tears in my eyes… As a daughter and a mom, I could deeply feel the writer’s mind. Beautiful and touching lyrics. I am very sorry for your loss, Karen. I’ll pray for Scott and you.
  • Karen Thorpe from Dl, MinnesotaI spent three glorious days with my son the last days of Dec. 2020 and on Jan 1, 2021 he passed away. I heard this song for the first time the next day on the radio and I cried and cried. It was like you knew how my son and I perfectly. Scott and I often spent our time together going to the mall to buy some shoes. This song will forever be the song that brings Scott back to me for a brief time. Right now it makes me cry because I remember getting close and hugging each other before I left, not knowing it would be the last time. I know in the future this song will bring back memories that will make me smile. Thank you for this song!!!
  • Dale Hines from South Carolina UsaI just heard this sound on the radio and immediately fell in love with it. It will be on my playlist now. Thank you for such a beautiful tribute for your parents; this is something that is very rare today
