lyrics

Mother Dear

Mother dear
It's not okay to say
Those terrible things
You talk to yourself
Like nobody else
So meanly

Don't you know
I'm like a sponge
I soak up all of your words
I plant them like seeds
They grow into trees
Rooted deeply

And I want to
And I need to
Know that it's okay
For you to be you
And me to be

All I want is
All I need is
To know no matter what
We all matter
That includes you
And that includes

I can't see
The wood for the trees
They reach around me like arms
To shield me from harm
But all they achieve
Restrains Me

I can't feel
My fingers and toes
My real emotions are frozen
Fast in this cage
Of branches and pain
Unbroken

And I want to
And I need to
Know that it's okay
For you to be you
And me to be

All I want is
All I need is
To know no matter what
We all matter
That includes you
And that includes

Light, perhaps,
Filtering through the gaps
Warms up my skin
It makes me begin
To dream of a life
Beyond this

Carve a path
The branches that held me fast
Are rungs of a ladder
Out of this place
The pain is displaced
By wonder

And I want to
And I need to
Know that it's okay
For you to be you
And me to be

All I want is
All I need is
To know no matter what
We all matter
That includes you
And that includes
