Mother can you hold me together
It's so dark and I'm losin' my way
I took all of these detours to find love
And when I did it just faded away

Now what do I do with this sweet love of mine?
Do I give it away and hope someday I'll find
Someone half as awake as the moon and the stars?
Mother, teach me to love with a paper thin heart

Ma ma ma
Ma ma ma
Ma ma ma

Mother your words are so healing
You speak of love and of life and of peace
But I made it my course to avoid you
Just to hide from these feelings of grief

Now what do I do with this sweet love of mine?
Do I give it away and hope someday I'll find
Someone half as awake as the moon and the stars?
Mother, teach me to love with a paper thin heart

Now what I do with this sweet love of mine?
Do I give it away and hope someday I'll find
Someone half as awake as the moon and the stars?
Mother, teach me to love with a paper thin heart

Ma ma ma
Ma ma ma
Ma ma ma
Ma ma ma

Ma ma ma
Ma ma ma
Ma ma ma
Ma ma ma

Mother, I know you are with me
You were there when I took my first breath
I can't stop looking back for the answers
I just keep coming up with regret
There are some things I just can't forget
