lyrics

Mother &Father


My mother
She takes over every room
She is made of rocket fuel
She is my mother

My father
He is poetry in stillness
He is made out of forgiveness
He is my father

And everything I am I stole from them
Every play in my book
Every chorus every hook
Everything I am I stole from them

And I have taken
More than my share of second chances
And all the grace that I’ve been granted
I don’t deserve it
But I’ll use it
I’ll take this stardust I’ve been given
I will shape it into a vision
Of love and care

And everything I am I stole from them
Every play in my book
Every chorus every hook
Everything I am I stole from them

And my father
He knows just what I am saying
But his eyes are tired and fading
He’s slowing down

My mother
No she won’t be here forever
So I will make sure to remember
To listen well

And everything I am I stole from them
Every play in my book
Every chorus every hook
Everything I am I stole from them
