People always say
I have a laugh like my mother does
Guess that makes sense
She taught me how to smile when things get rough
I've got her spirit, she's always got my back
When I look at her I think I want to be just like that

When I love I give it all I've got
Like my mother does
When I'm scared I bow my head and pray
Like my mother does

She's a rock, she is grace
She's an angel, she's my heart and soul
She does it all

When I love, I give it all I've got
Like my mother does
When I'm scared I bow my head and pray
Like my mother does

When I'm weak and unpretty
I know I'm beautiful and strong
Because I see myself
Like my mother does

    This is why i was rooting for lauren alaina on idol. She's just pure in the way that she sings. She made this song so believable. She is a class act and i love that about her. I hope that she goes really far. The whole album is terrific. I listened to a few songs on itunes and i knew that i was really going to like it. I was right, it's pretty amazing! This is such a beautiful song.

    'she taught me how to smile when things get rough. ' that is so my mom. She keeps going even when times get really hard and i feel like giving up. She showed/shows me how to keep standing and fighting.

    It really means that mothers are the crown to their childrens. It means that mother never gives up fighting a good fight for their love towards their childrens. As for me i would really say that i would never replace my mothers love to me.. My mother is the greatest gift that god has sent in our family..
