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
[Chorus] 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
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.
