Aaron Lines – Twenty Years Late lyrics
(Aaron Lines/Monty Powell/Troy Verges)

Hey mom I know that it's late, hope I didn't wake you
Yeah, everything is O.K., just needed to talk to you
Today I had one of those days
But I didn't call to complain
Just to say everything that I didn't for all of those years
You were a taxicab driver, a nurse and a maid
A waitress, a cook and a shoulder to lay
My head on to cry on, when nothing was going my way
You knew every answer without cracking a book
And I took for granted that I had it so good
And I'm sorry it's taken me so long to say
Thank you I love you
Twenty years late

It's funny how time passing by can change your perspective
A little while out on your own can sure make you think
I don't know how you did it
No I can't find one spare minute
The days run together but I don't remember you
Ever letting us down

You were the judge and the jury when I did wrong
Been my biggest fan from my very first song
The gas in the engine that always kept me moving on
A seamstress a counselor and the one referee
That could cold stop a fight between my brother and me
And I'm sorry it's taken me so long to say
Thank you I love you
Twenty years late

I'll let you go now
But I hope that you know now how I feel
Thank you for making me the man I've become
I love you and I will always be your son
Mom that's all I called to say
20 years late...
20 years late...
20 years late...

    My youngest son moved away when he was just 19. We kept in touch occasionally. He would call once in a while. As the years went by , his children had grown and he came back home. He came by and we had a talk similar to these lyrics. He stopped over again to help me with a appliance, said he loved his new job, best job he ever had, can't stay but would love to come by sometime to have one of my good home cooked meals. As he was leaving, he gave me a hug, said he loved me and if I need anything just give him a call. That was the last time I ever saw him. 2 days later he was crushed to death from equipment on his job he loved. Thankful that he took the time to tell me that he remembers all the things this single Mom did for him, 20 yrs late, but just in time. Love you always, Dan Miss you terribly.
