​My Mother Said

This song is by Anneke van Giersbergen and appears on the album Drive (2013).

My mother said "I gained a friend
At the end of the heart to heart."
My mother asked, "Will you be fine
With the choices you make in your life?"

And you pick me up,
And you hold me close,
And you show the way,
And you let me go.

My father said, "Use your head,
The guys upstairs, they just don't care."
My father asked, "Will you be safe
When you are always so far away?"

And you pick me up,
And you hold me close,
And you show the way,
And you let me go.

I let the light into my life,
Close my eyes before I die.
And you let me go,
And you sent me off -

Into the sky,
Always believe in me, always beside me.
I've come this far and I'll be going
Farther than the stars.

And you pick me up,
And you hold me close,
And you take my hand,
And you watch me grow,
And you show the way,
And you let me go.

I let the light into my life,
Close my eyes before I die.
And you let me go,
You let me go.


My mother said, "I gained a friend."
