I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill 
I threw the day old tea from the cup
 Packed up the photo album Matthew had made
 Memories of a life that's been loved 
Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals
 Poured the old ginger beer down the sink
Dad always told me, "don't you cry when you're down"
But mum, there's a tear every time that I blink 

Oh I'm in pieces, it's tearing me up, but I know
A heart that's broke is a heart that's been loved 

So I'll sing Hallelujah 
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you'd be there holding me up
 Spread your wings as you go
And when God takes you back we'll say Hallelujah 
You're home

I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up
 Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case
John says he'd drive then put his hand on my cheek 
And wiped a tear from the side of my face

I hope that I see the world as you did cause I know
A life with love is a life that's been lived 

So I'll sing Hallelujah 
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you'd be there holding me up
 Spread your wings as you go
And when God takes you back we'll say Hallelujah 
You're home

 Hallelujah 
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
You got to see the person that I have become  Spread your wing
And I know that when God took you back he said Hallelujah 
You're home
