Mother, can you hold me together 
It's so dark and I'm losing my way
I took all of these detours to find love
But when I did, it just faded away

 Someone half as awake 
As the moon and the stars 
Mother, teach me to love
With a paper-thin heart 

Mother, your words are so healing 
You speak of love and of light and of peace 
But I've made it my course to avoid you
Just to hide from these feelings of grief 

[Chorus: x2]

Mother, I know you are with me
You were there when I took my first breath
I can't stop looking back for the answers 
I just keep coming up with regret  There are some things I just can't forget.
