You've cradled me since I was born
We've survived each other's scorn
And as the time has come and gone
I've watched you love me like a mother

Heart of gold nerves of steel
You taught me how to feel
And the feelings they are real
Between a child and a mother

Hold me, share the soul inside me
And fly free, send me on my way

With all the earth beneath my feet
I''ve finally wandered out of reach
And all the silence cannot speak
Of the love from a mother

I'll build a life I'll build a home
A family of my own
And share the love I've known
Between a child and a mother

Hold me, share the soul inside me
Then fly free, I'll be on my way

You've cradled me since I was born
And when our time has finally gone
I know that I can still hold on
To the love of a mother
