Lyrics:

Intro (0:04)

Verse 1 (0:18)
Mama, she has taught me well, Told me when I was young
Son, your life's an open book, Don't close it 'fore it's done
The brightest flame burns quickest, Is what I heard her say
A son's heart sewed to mother, But I must find my way

Chorus (0:49)
Let my heart go, Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go, Or let this heart be still

Verse 2 (1:30)
Rebel my new last name, Wild blood in my veins
Apron strings around my neck, The mark that still remains
Left home at an early age, Of what I heard was wrong
I never asked forgiveness, But what is said is done

Chorus (2:00)
Let my heart go, Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go, Or let this heart be still

Bridge (2:26)
Never I ask of you, But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness, I now take to my grave
Never I ask of you, But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness, I now take to my grave
So let this heart be still

Verse 3 (3:00)
Mama, now I'm coming home, I'm not all you wished of me
A mother's love for her son, Spoken, help me be
Well, I took your love for granted, And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me, But, a cold stone's all I see

Chorus (3:32)
Let my heart go, Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go, Or let this heart be still
Let my heart go, Mama, let my heart go
You never let my heart go, So let this heart be still, woooh

Outro (4:38)
Never I ask of you, But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness, I now take to my grave
Never I ask of you, But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness, I now take to my grave
So let this heart be still

Enjoy

James from Handsome Alvin
