Mother's Day

Michael Patrick Kelly

Songtext:

Just a kid walking home through a field of dust
Tryna pick you some flowers where the grains rust
Passed the house on the street where we used to play
I'm gonna make up, gonna make up for what I forgot to say

Somehow I'll get them roses
Daisies and daffodils too
And since I don't have a coin in my pocket
I'll just steal them for you

I want you to know, after all these years
The highs and the lows, all the joys and tears
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day
I want you to know, see who I've become
The care that you showed has kept me warm
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day

Flowers
Flowers
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day

The day you left, I was five and I didn't know
That you were heading to a place that I couldn't go
And now I'm driving back to the town where we used to stay
I've gathered a bunch, gathered a bunch, now I can't afford to pay

Some say never say never
But you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
'Cause I feel like I'm that kid forever
A kid just missing his mom

I want you to know, after all these years
The highs and the lows, all the joys and tears
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day
I want you to know, see who I've become
The care that you showed has kept me warm
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day

Flowers
Flowers
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day

Coming back home to try to right some wrongs
And all of these flowers soon will be gone
But I know that I am not forever young
I'm still the kid just missing his mom

I want you to know, after all these years
The highs and the lows, all the joys and tears
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day
I want you to know, see who I've become
The care that you showed has kept me warm
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day

Flowers
Flowers
Your love still weighs
And I'll find a way to get you flowers on Mothers' Day
