You worked two jobs,
To keep a roof above our heads,
You chose a life for me,
No you never gave up,
I admire you for the strength you've instilled in me,
You were so young
You were just my age when you had me mom,
You were so brave.
There was nothing gonna stop or get in our way.
And I know you will always be there for me.

So when you're lost and you're tired,
When you're broken in two,
Let my love take you higher, cause I, I still turn to you.
I still turn to you, I still turn to you.

It was '94, the year that
Everything started to change from before
You had to be a woman,
You were forced to change your ways, to change your ways...
Then you found the Lord,
You gave your life to Him,
And you could not ignore, the love he had for you

And I wanted more of your heart.

So when you're lost and you're tired,
When you're broken in two,
Let my love take you higher,
Cause I, I still turn to you.
I still turn to you, I still turn to you

I don't know what I'd if you left me,
So please don't go away,
Everything that you are is who I am, who I am today...

So when you're lost (you're Lost) and you're tired, (you're tired)
When you're broken in two, (In two)
Let my love take you higher, (You higher)
Cause I, (I) I still turn to you.
I still turn to you, I still turn to you.

To you, to you, to you.
I still turn to you.
(I still turn to you)
Cause I, I turn to you.

    This song really shows how thankful and greatful justin is towards his mother. From this song, we can tell that his mother has played an extremely big role in his life and we can see how much sacrifices pattie has actually made for justin. Justin and Pattie really deserves everything they have now. I'm sure this song makes us reflect and be thankful and grateful our mothers that brought us into this world. You might say they shouldn't have have birth to you as you are going through a tough time now and might actually wish you were not alive. But trust me, life is amazing. If your mother didn't bring u into this world, you will definitely not know this heartthrob-Justin bieber!
