lyrics

Dear Mother,
I'm sorry that I haven't been
the daughter I wish I would have been.
It's not that I don't love you.
I want to make you proud,
but all the choices that I've made always seemed to let you down.

And So, what can I do? So what can I say?
Even though I've made a lot of mistakes, I still love you anyway.

Dear Father,
forgive me for the distance.
Please know that i
t's not in avoidance.
It's not that I don't love you.
I want to be around.
I never meant to leave you.
I just had to leave town.
Oh, you know I had to leave town.

And so, what can I do? So, what can I say?
Even though we live in different places, I still love you anyway.

And I'm so glad that we made it through
those awful teenage years when I thought I hated you.
And I'm so glad now I understand
when I was trying to get you off my back, you were the only ones who had it!



The gap that resides from the changing of the times is not enough to divide us.
No, there's something that I can't explain with my mind- a bond love provides us.
And I have to say I love you dearly.
And I appreciate all that you've done for me.
And I have to say I love you dearly.
And I appreciate all that you've done for me.

And so, one day,
when I have children of my own,
I'll remember
just how much we've grown.
I'll pass through all the heartaches
of each stage anew,
and hope that I can be as good of parents as you.

And so, what can I do? So, what can I say?
Even though everything isn't perfect, I still love you all the way.
