Whoa, yeah

She was so young with such innocent eyes
She always dreamt of a fairytale life
And all the things that your money can't buy
She thought that he was a wonderful guy

Then suddenly things seemed to change
It was the moment she took on his name
He took his anger out on her face
She kept all of her pain locked away

Oh Mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh Mother, don't look back
'Cause he'll never hurt us again

So Mother, I thank you
For all that you've done and still do
You got me, I got you
Together we always pull through

We always pull through
We always pull through
Oh Mother, oh Mother, oh Mother

It was the day that he turned on the kids
That she knew she just had to leave him
So many voices inside of her head
Saying over and over and over
"You deserve much more than this"

She was so sick of believing the lies and trying to hide
Covering the cuts and bruises
So tired of defending her life, she could have died
Fighting for the lives of her children

Oh Mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh Mother, don't look back
'Cause he'll never hurt us again

So Mother, I thank you
For all that you've done and still do
You got me, I got you
Together we always pull through
Oh Mother, oh Mother, oh Mother

All of your life you have spent
Burying hurt and regret
But mama
He'll never touch us again

For every time he tried to break you down
Just remember who's still around
It's over and we're stronger
And we'll never have to go back again!

Oh Mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh Mother, don't look back
'Cause he'll never hurt us again

So Mother, I thank you
For all that you've done and still do
You got me, I got you
Together we always pull through

We always pull through, yeah
We always pull through, yeah
I love you Mom
