Story Behind the Song

Written about the miracle of life from the perspective of the "almost aborted child" when his teenage mom (by a prayer) decides to have the child. The song is sung from the perspective of the child after he is grown, thanking his mother for giving him the opportunity to live and to become "me".

Lyrics

Thank You Mom

THEY MET AT THE MALL IT WAS SATURDAY NITE
BY 10 THEY WERE BOTH HOLDING HANDS
AND IF YOU BELIEVE IN A LOVE AT 1ST SIGHT
YOU SURELY COULD SEE IT IN THEM
ONE NITE THE PASSION FLEW OUT OF CONTROL
IT WAS LOVE ... SHE WANTED TO PLEASE
2 MONTHS LATER ... AT A CROSSROAD
SHE WAS ONLY 16

I WANT TO THANK YOU MOM FOR ME
YOU CHOSE LIFE ... SO I COULD BE
THANK YOU MOM FOR ME

(musical turnaround)

HE FINALLY STOPPED CALLING AND FADED AWAY
HE COULDN'T FACE BEING A DAD
A FRIEND SAID "YOU KNOW THIS COULD ALL GO AWAY ... IT'S QUICK AND IT WON'T HURT THAT BAD
THAT NIGHT SHE FOUND HERSELF DOWN ON HER KNEES ... OH GOD WHAT SHOULD I DO?
HER PRAYER WAS ANSWERED AND THAT'S
WHEN SHE KNEW TO CHOOSE LIFE
AND CHOOSE ME TOO
I WANT TO THANK YOU MOM FOR ME
YOU CHOSE LIFE ... SO I COULD BE
THANK YOU MOM FOR ME
I WANT TO THANK YOU MOM FOR ME
YOU CHOSE LIFE ... SO I COULD BE
THANK YOU MOM FOR ME
THANK YOU MOM FOR ME
