|Lyrics:||I followed you everywhere |
You could be found
You would just stand and stare
A knowing and a loving frown
I would be wary
Of making you angry
Yes I’ll just take it steady
And maybe you’ll hold me
Mother. You are my flesh and blood and I want to hold you.
As everyday goes by
I am realising
The little things you did
Weren’t just good timing
I want to ask you how you had the patience for it all
This distance is too far I need the strength that you are
Each time you cried for me
If I could replace
Diamonds and jewels they are not enough
For your tender heart and your mothers touch
Flesh and Blood. Brick and Bone. Fill my heart. Feed my soul.
