Marie Fredriksson – Mother lyrics

Where will I be
The day I need you for my own
Who will I be
When I can't reach you on the phone
Will I still be the same
Will I still feel this pain
Will you still be mother
When you're dead & gone
All alone - on my own

Finally me
Without the mountains or the sea
Lord, what is to be
Why do my past just have to leave
I always loved your soul
I know I've been much too cold
We've had times of trouble
That were never told
When is it too late to say
That I loved you anyway
Will I still be proud
When you're dead & gone
All alone - on my own

Oh mother can't you see
That this fight is all about me
Why can't you understand
That I'm a child
And a grown up woman
Mother can't you see
That this fight is all about me
You think that I'm wild
But I'm a woman and still a child
Disappointed and proud
I wish I dared to scream out loud
We've been the same
God give me words so I can explain
Don't say I never tried
Don't ever say I lied
Will I still be something
When you're dead & gone
Please try to ease my pain
So I can feel again
Say you always loved me
Before you're dead & gone
All alone - on my own

But finally you won't be no other
Than my mother
