Mama Said [Demo Version] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Mama she has taught me well
Told me when I was young
"Son your life's an open book
Don't close it 'fore its done"
Verse 2
The brightest flame burns quickest
That's what I heard her say
A son's heart's owed to mother
But I must find my way
Verse 3
Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still
Yeah, still
Verse 4
Rebel, my new last name
Wild blood in my veins
Apron strings around my neck
Verse 5
The mark that still remains
Left home at an early age
Of what I heard was wrong
I never asked forgiveness
But what is said is done
Verse 6
Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still
Verse 7
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
So let this heart be still
Verse 8
Mama, now I'm coming home
I'm not all you wished of me
A mother's love for her son
Unspoken, and maybe
Yeah, I took your love for granted
And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me
But, a cold stone's all I see
Verse 9
Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still
Let my heart go
Mama, let my heart go
Verse 10
You never let my heart go
So let this heart be still
Verse 11
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
Verse 12
So let this heart be still
