  • This is for my mother, from the older brother of your children made of three
    Now you found your lover 'cause it wasn't our father who made you laugh and happy
    It's been a long five years, I've cried a thousand tears
    And here we are after the war
    But we're so much better now the skies are clearer
    Now there's no more slamming doors

    Now I say
    Dear Mother, how you've come so far
    Your love has fixed all of our broken hearts
    I hope you're proud, mother, of what you've done
    It's a lifelong lesson and I'm not pretending when I say
    You cleared up my scars
    You cleared up my scars

    This is for my father, from the older brother of your children made of three
    Yeah you've been so good to us and showed us how to live and taught us to be free
    But when mother told you that she didn't love you all these bridges hit the sea
    So you built another one and helped us cross it even though you were in need

    Now I say
    Dear Father, how you've come so far
    Your love has fixed all of our broken hearts
    I hope you're proud, father, of what you've done
    It's a lifelong lesson and I'm not pretending when I say
    You cleared up my scars
    You cleared up my scars
    You cleared up my scars
    Cleared up my scars

    Dear mother, how you've come so far
    Your love has fixed all of our broken hearts
    I hope you're proud, mother, of what you've done
    It's a lifelong lesson and I'm not pretending when I say
    You cleared up my scars Writer/s: Brendan Grieve, Sam Smith
