Story Behind The Song

Verse 1

Could have passed you on the street to day Mamma
I never would have known
Could be living in the same town Mamma
I would never, never know

Bridge 1

Do I share your smile, Mamma?
Do I have my Daddy's eyes?
'Cos when I look at myself, I don't see nobody else
I got no family ties


Am I like you Mamma?
Do I do the things you do?
Am I like you Mamma?
Do you miss us like I do?
It may not be what we're hoping for
But at least I'll have tried
Might just be all I need to heal
What I feel inside

Verse 2

Must have been real hard for you Mamma
To do the right thing
To give it all up, on a life for me
And what my future may bring

Bridge 2

Some day soon Mamma
Gonna do this face to face
I have grown in understanding
Lord knows we all make mistakes

Midd. 8

All the years are gone and the time ticks on
Every day is another day without you (x2)
All the years are gone, all the years are gone

(Chorus x2 ? to fade)
