I know you don't like me, don't like the things I do
The saddest part just might be that I don't like you too
You think you know my story well maybe you did for a little while
I guess that's the way it goes sometimes between
A mother and a child, a mother and a child

All my life you've reminded me how you struggled nine long months
Your aching back and your swollen feet how you almost lost me once
You say you gave up everything all the dreams you had
Told us kids we're the only reason you stayed there with our dad

And you want me to cry for you and you want me to feel the way you do
I'm sorry your life let you down but the fault it is not mine
It's not supposed to be like this between a mother and a child

You want me to just agree with everything you say
Call my dad the bad guy make him pay and pay and pay
It's really not my business it never was or will ever be
But I know nobody's perfect and that's counting you and me
Yeah that's counting you and me

I don't remember all that happened mama I was just a kid
But if it really was all that bad why do you wish I did?

You want me to cry for you I'll never feel the way you do
I'm sorry your life let you down but the fault it is not mine
It's not supposed to be this way between a mother and a child
Oh a mother and a child you're my mother and I'm your child yeah
