Lyrics

Goodbye Mother

You taught me since I was a little girl how to be strong
To listen to my heart I can do no wrong
Mama I am learning now, that is true
Since this illness got the best of you
My heart is crying out while we hold on
you have suffered far too long

Chorus:
So let me be the one that combs your hair
Who holds your hand til you're finally there
I promise,i won't cry now when you're gone
I'll do my best to make you proud and carry on
All the years of tears and days of loving care
Sleepless nights of silence that we shared
Goodbye Mother, the time is drawing near
Goodbye Mother, peace will soon be here

I'll work on your house ,so i can stay
Keep your memory close to help me find my way
I'll tell the family it was time for you to go
To remember who you were in days of old
This illness stripped you of your dignity
Now i pray ...God help me set you free

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
Turn off the light, shut it all down, stop feeding the pain
Heaven's waiting for you now

All the years of tears and days of loving care
Sleepless nights of silence that we shared
Good-bye Mother, the end is drawing near
Good-bye Mother peace is finally here......gotta be strong
