I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet

With an ocean in my spirit
And cracks on my lips
There's scars in my heart
And there's burn on my hips

And ocean becomes heavy
And tries to push its way out
To these ancient eyes
And the memories in my mouth

Ocean becomes tears
Heaven flows
Over the lines in my face
And the pain in my soul

The pain hits a wall
Doesn't know which way to go
An ocean says I'm crying now
It tells pain to follow

And pain courses through
Every vein, every limb
Trying to find a way out
Between the secrets in my skin

Secrets hold on
Until they finally give in
And they meet up with ocean
And tears again

And tears send me a shovel
To celebrate beneath the crust
That binds earthly skin
And buries all the trust

But somehow trust was caught
Between the cracks on my lips
And there's scars in my heart
And there's burn on my hips

I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet

I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet
I love you mama you sweet
