Oh Mother [Album Version]
by Christina Aguilera

She was so young with such innocent eyes,
she always dreamt of a fairytale life,
and all the things that your money cant buy,
she thought that he was a wonderful guy.
then suddenly things seemed to change,
it was the moment he took on her name,
he took his anger out on her face,
and she kept all her pain locked away
Oh mother, we're stronger, for all of the tears you have shed,
Oh mother, don't look back cause he'll never hurt us again,
So mother, I thank you, for all that you've done and still do,
You got me, I got you, together we always pull through.
we always pull through, always pull through.
Oh mother Oh mother oh mother.

It was the day that he turned on the kids,
that she knew she just had to leave him,
so many voices inside of her head,
saying over and over and over,
you deserve much more than this,
She was,
so sick of believing the lies, and trying to hide,
covering the cuts and bruises.
So tired of defending her life,
she could have died
fighting for the lives of her children.

All of your life you have spent,
burying hurt and regret,
but mama,
he'll never touch us again,
for every time he tried to break you down,
Just remember who's still around,
It's over,
and we're stronger,
and we'll never have to go back again!
(Repeat Chorus)
Always pull through,
We always pull through yeah,
I love you mom
