If I could only hear
My mother sing again
If I could close my eyes
And hear your voice as then

All the friends and family
Would sing along with me
And set your spirit free

In my heart I hear you sing again
Every note as natural as then
When I sing those songs
With family and friends
In my heart I hear you sing again

I know the troubled times
That turned your hair to gray
And all the tears and sorrows

Followed to your grave
But deep within the heart of hunger
There were always melodies
Passed from you to me

In my heart I hear you sing again
Every note as natural as then
When I sing those songs
For family and friends
In my heart I hear you sing again

And it's a long, long road I've come
Since my mother's songs were heard
But the child I can't outrun
Still hangs on every word

In my heart I hear you sing again
Every note as natural as then
When I sing those songs
With family and friends
In my heart I hear you sing again
