Oh mama, we'd sail away
Doing cartwheels
On the front lawn everyday
And you'd sing, "Here comes the sun"

Then we'd dance together
I thought it would last forever
I see my life fly on by
Like a soldier in the rain

With a shining road ahead of me
For once in my life I wanna be happy
Stop running from my memories
Being on the road sets me free

But sometimes I want to come back home
I want to hear your voice say to me
Be yourself
'Cause that's all that matters baby

Oh mama, you'd carry me away
On the rooftops and in the high trees
That's where I used to dream
I'd close my eyes and hear you sing

"Blackbird in the dead of night"
I see your life fly on by
Mama don't you be afraid
Look at all the love that you have made

Oh mama, you want us to forgive you
But you did nothing wrong
You followed your road for so long

That sometimes you want to come back home
You want it all to be the way it was
Shaynamaidala doing cartwheels
On the lawn

All the planes are out tonight
I see them flying, lighting up the sky
