  • Mother, can you hold me together
    It's so dark and I'm losing my way
    I took all of these detours to find love
    But when I did, it just faded away

    Now what do I do
    With this sweet love of mine
    Do I give it away and
    Hope someday I'll find
    Someone half as awake
    As the moon and the stars
    Mother, teach me to love
    With a paper-thin heart

    Mother, your words are so healing
    You speak of love and of light and of peace
    But I've made it my course to avoid you
    Just to hide from these feelings of grief

    [Chorus: x2]

    Mother, I know you are with me
    You were there when I took my first breath
    I can't stop looking back for the answers
    I just keep coming up with regret
    There are some things I just can't forget. Writer/s: SHERYL CROW
