  • One more time, one more time
    Huh, one more time, huh
    One more time

    I dream of the day I could go back to when I was born
    Laying in your arms, wishing you was here today mom
    Wish you'd appear
    Just for a second from heaven my tears would be gone
    I wouldn't be rapping this song
    I'd be happy driving up to your 8 bed room mansion
    Up late, laughing bout the hard time we faced
    The galaxy is so enchanting beyond, Galileo's understanding
    Past the milky way and all the planets
    There's something out there greater
    But only god knows, scientist claim we came from apes
    But they lies though, that was part of our conversation
    I spark went up a star blazing
    Thinking of how amazing she was
    A angel gave me love
    I'm thankful, to ever know a women so real
    I pray when I marry my wife'll have one of your skillz
    But mom you could never be replaced
    I'd give my life up
    Just to see you one more day
    To have

    [Chorus]
    One more dance with you mama
    If I could only have
    One more dance with you mama
    Praying, wish that I could have
    One more dance with you mama
    If I could only have
    One more dance with you mama

    I wish you were here,
    I miss you more each second I breathe
    You resting in peace forever I accepted you free
    A blessing to me, I see you dressed in all white
    Smiling at me, happy knowing everything's all right
    If only I could hear your voice and your laughter
    Just one more time, my chest would be filled up with sunshine
    April 7, 02
    That's when the gates of heaven opened up for you to stroll threw
    Beautiful Anne Jones
    Job is done, raising ghetto kids in the hood
    You was my strength to carry on and now I'm good
    Job well done, you lived through you sons and your grandchildren
    Jesus finally got his bride, mommy dance with em
    And you've been my guide threw all the trouble I faced
    They playing our song the lifebeat my hand on your waist
    I grab your other hand and try not to step on your toes
    Spin you around with my eyes closed
    Dreaming I could have

    [Chorus]

    I love you forever mom
    You will always live threw me, always
    Huh, huh huh, yea Writer/s: CHUCKY THOMPSON, NASIR JONES

  • Thomas Bello David from Abuja, Nigeria. I also lost my mom on June 12, 2019. This marks the saddest day of my entire life. Wish I could also have the chance to dance with my mother again. She mean the world to me and can never be replaced.
    I love you mom.
    You remain the best.
