Lyrics

V1: I miss you, Mama
I miss your strength and your honesty
I miss the way you always looked out for me
And made me believe
I could be anything that I wanted to be

V2: I miss you, Mama
And the way you always took my side
I remember how you tried to hide the tears you cried
When I sang to you and you beamed with pride

Cho: I miss you, Mama, oh
Can you still hear me, crying out to you
I miss my Mama

V3: I miss you, Mama
I miss your kind and generous heart
I miss the way you played the cards
That were dealt to you
Even when life didn't treat you like you wanted it to

Cho:

Bridge: I found that picture you saved of the man you loved
Hidden behind the portrait of Dad
I know he didn't always make life easy
Still you found a way to give it all you had
You encouraged me to stand on my own
So I wouldn't be afraid to be alone
Sometimes I cursed you for it
But it made me strong and you get the credit

V4: I miss you, Mama
I miss your wit and your energy
I only wish you could have lived to see
How I turned out to be
A living tribute to your memory
