Lyrics

MAMA

It was an ordinary morning
when I woke up.
I eat and drank my coffee slowly,
a new day to start.
Nothing seemed unusual in the light of dawn,
Only that I didn't know my mom was gone.

The phone started ringing like a prankster
in the quiet day.
Didn't know if I should answer,
my feet felt like clay.
Not expecting anything, I just picked it up
Someone was telling me that my mom's heart had stopped.


CHORUS:

I wish that I could see your face
in dreams at least, in dreams.
To hold you tight in sweet embrace
in dreams at least, in dreams.
Mama ... mama ... mama...


I didn't know who was howling
in the quiet morn.
The time has stopped and I was wondering
why the sun shone.
The other ones all came to me not knowing what to say,
They told me that now she was safe and I should pray.
I wanted to tell them: "That's OK,
it's just a nightmare."
My mom was fine, what were they saying,
she still has time to spare.
I just spoke with her today, she was doing fine;
And I still have so many things to tell her in time.

CHORUS

I took the plane to go to see her
as I always did.
It was a holiday for others,
happy all they seemed.
Life was rolling all along, all around me.
"Please stop!" I wanted to cry to them, "for you can't see."


I opened the door expecting to hear her,
but the air was still.
She lay quietly in the hallway,
waiting I could feel.
"I'm here", I told her bravely, "I came to say goodbye.
Don't worry, you'll always live in me, you'll never die."


Mama... mama ... mama ... mama ... mama ... mama...
