Momma

By Edmund Snyder on June 19, 2016 9:55 pm

I remember several times my mom asking me when I was going to write a song about her.  I always responded that lyrics writing for me needs to be kinda spontaneous and that I have a difficult time forcing myself to write about something particular.  Well, now I've finally written a song about her but she'll never hear it.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

VERSE 1
Momma, your time is through.
And no one left in my world could hold a candle next to you.
Momma, I remember everything you say.
You asked me not to grieve but here I am grieving anyway.
Momma, Momma!


CHORUS
Sometimes it seems that life is so, so long.
But with all that you meant to me, one day I blinked and you were gone.
Sometimes it seems that life will never end.
But now that you're gone I know that you weren't just mom, you were my friend.



VERSE 2
Momma, I learned so much from you I'll never forget.
But with all the things you taught me you never taught me how to get over this.
Momma, I remember everything you say.
You asked me not to grieve but here I am grieving anyway.
Momma, Momma!


REPEAT CHORUS


BRIDGE
Waves crash
Life flies by
Time ticks and passes
Until all that's left is this bag full of ashes

Earth spins
Babies cry
Just as sure as taxes
Now all that's left
is this bowl full of ashes

REPEAT CHORUS fade out
