Mother Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I would never let a tear fall from your eyes
No, no, no, no
'Cause everything you are to me
Oh, I could never let you hurt inside

You mean so much and I'm so thankful that you're in my life
And I appreciate your love and all your sacrifice
Without you by my side, I never could survive
I wouldn't be the woman standing here before your eyes

You taught me strength and you gave me guidance
Whenever faith was lost, you were there to find it
And all because a mother's love is unconditional
With all my heart and all my soul, I wanna let you know

That I hate you but I love you
And I can never pick anyone above you
Said I thank you and I love you
And I will never ever place no one above you

You have given me life and I just want you to know
That you're the reason I'm here today, I will never let go
To everything that we share and nothing can compare
I thank you, I thank you, I thank you is what I'm saying

You see I've been blessed to be raised by a woman so strong
'Cause even when I did things wrong
You would show me just the way that I should carry on

You kept me safe and you protected me with all you had
And any time I was in need you gave your very last
Without you by my side, I never could survive
I wouldn't be the woman standing here before your eyes

You taught me strength and you gave me guidance
Whenever faith was lost you were there to find it
And all because a mothers love is unconditional
With all my heart and all my soul I wanna let you know

That I thank you and I love you
And I will never place anyone above you
Said I thank you and I love you
I could never place anyone above you, yeah

You have given me life and I just want you to know
That you're the reason I'm here today, I will never let go
To all the thing that we shared and nothing can compare
I thank you, I thank you, I thank you is what I'm saying

I remember waking up early Monday morning
With my new dress and my new shoes, with the buckles on 'em
And you would kiss my face and say I love you babe
And you would be right there to take all of my fear away

And when he broke my heart, you said it was his loss
And not to think about it, you're better off with out him
Remember when they said that I was never gonna make it
You said it yours and all you gotta do is go and take it

Said I thank you and I love you
And I will never ever place no one above you
Said I thank you and I love you
And I will never ever place no one above you

See, you have given me life and I just want you to know
That you're the reason I'm here today I will never let go
To everything that we share and nothing can compare

Said I thank you and I love you
And I will never ever place no one above you
I said I thank you and yes, I love you
And I will never ever place no one above you

See, you have given me life and I just want you to know
That you're the reason I'm here today I will never let go
To everything that we share and nothing can compare
I thank you, I thank you, I thank you is what I'm saying
