beth hart – mama lyrics


mother may i, and would say
yes sweet baby take it away
it won’t be long
just…just remember the
powerful is the woman in you
stay true now
and she’d come to me
when fire & water was gone
to caress the empty with a song

saying why cry for anger
that bullet the sky
just remember
and i’ll remember cause mama
i’ll get by

and i know my face
seems crazed & wild
but i got her eyes
a mama’s child am i
she’s blessed with grace
and is smooth as a line
and when i shade
she helps me shine
and she comes to me
when there’s nothing i believe
and holds me so high
yes i am free

saying why hold the anger
it won’t let you fly
just remember
and i’ll remember
cause mama mama i’ll get by

confused by my own illusions
she said that it’s only my pride
even the simplest solutions
still won’t heal my mind
so i’ll remember
i’ll remember
i’ll get by, by
how i’ve been
