I used to be a strong girl, mama said that strong girls don't cry
I used to be a cute little girl, mama said that cute girls don't lie
But I say... mama you were so wrong, I cry but I feel strong
And I don't wanna be like you, I hate the things you do because

Mama you're a liar, you say you want me to be me
You are such a liar, you say that you believe in me

Everything you said seemed so right, I never knew that you could be so wrong
But all I really want is you to hold me tight, it's everything I need to feel strong
Remember, how we used to speak, until we fell asleep
Remember, how you dried my tears, it all was so sincere
But now

Mama, you're a liar, you say you want me to be me
You are such a liar, you say that u believe in me

When I was a little girl
I considered you an angel
Mama, we were so damn close
And now you're just a stranger
Because, Mama you're liar...

    My mom has never been the most loving, yet i love her with my heart or atleast use to... She has put me through hell and because of her i have a hard time feeling love, or a sense of caring for anyone. My emotions are quite dead, numb... They're there i know this, but she has given me an inability to feel much of anything, i refuse to let anyone in, and i feel like a bother to others... I can not talk to her about anything, she yells at me if i cry and says it's weak, or whatever else she can come up with. My whole life she has made me feel like i am a bother, but i'm not. I have made it my destiny to become everything she is not. My mother does nothing but sit around all day, sleep all night and most the day. She does nothing with her life, and her boyfriend, a man who has adopted me and i see as a father got into drugs, and she thinks it's cool. She is honestly like a child, so thanks to all her mistakes i have learned how to become a success, and i will make my dreams come true, and be everything i always hoped and wished she would be. This song stands for my fight, to me atleast... It means almost all of what and how i feel. I love kerli 10x's more for this song.

    Mama you're a liar means crying but not being weak and being yourself not trying to fit someone else's reflection because you are perfect and no one has the right to tell you otherwise and if they do... They're liars.
