Song Lyric Sunday – Oh Mother by Christina Aguilera

I wanted to post a song about Moms today but I honestly couldn’t think of one off the top of my head, so I looked up a list and was reminded of this song by Christina Aguilera.  I listened to other songs, but I kept coming back to this one.  It’s not a song I have listened to over and over again because it is heart-wrenching.  But it’s such a beautiful tribute.

I’ve always loved Christina’s voice and combined with the powerful lyrics in this one, it brings me to tears every time I hear it.

Happy Mothers day to all you bad ass Moms out there.

I love you Mom!

If you’d like to play along, feel free to read the “rules” below and post a song about Moms or one that makes you think of your Mom.

Oh Mother by Christina Aguilera
Written by Christina Aguilera and a few others (I found the info on Wikipedia)
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Whoa, oh, yeah,

She was so young with such innocent eyes
She always dreamt of a fairytale life
And all the things that your money can’t buy
She thought that he was a wonderful guy
Then suddenly, things seemed to change
It was the moment she took on his name
He took his anger out on her face
She kept all of her pain locked away

Oh mother, we’re stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh mother, don’t look back
Cause he’ll never hurt us again

So mother, I thank you
For all that you’ve done and still do
You got me, I got you
Together we always pull through
We always pull through
We always pull through
Oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

It was the day that he turned on his kids
That she knew she just had to leave him
So many voices inside of her head
Saying over and over and over,
“You deserve much more than this.”

She was so sick of believing the lies and trying to hide
Covering the cuts and bruises (cuts and bruises)
So tired of defending her life, she could have died
Fighting for the lives of her children

Oh mother, we’re stronger
From all of the tears you have shed (all of the tears you have shed)
Oh mother, don’t look back
Cause he’ll never hurt us again (he’ll never hurt us again)

So mother, I thank you (thank you)
For all that you’ve done and still do (still do)
You got me, I got you, (yeah you got me and I got you)
Together we always pull through.
We always pull through
We always pull through
Oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

All of your life you have spent
Burying hurt and regret
But mama, he’ll never touch us again

For everytime he tried to break you down
Just remember who’s still around
It’s over, and we’re stronger
And we’ll never have to go back again

Oh mother, we’re stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh mother, don’t look back (oh mother don’t look back again)
Cause he’ll never hurt us again (cause he’ll never hurt us again)

So mother, I thank you (and I thank you for everything you’ve done)
For all that you’ve done and still do (together we always move on)
You got me, I got you, (you got me, I got you)
Together we always pull through (always pull through)
We always pull through
We always pull through

I love you mom
