We lost my mother on April 25th, 2016, very suddenly. She was a warm and caring and creative person. She gave me music. This song is for her.


Hello my mama, hello
I’ve known you all this time and I still have room to grow
In every picture something new
Little pieces of a life lived in only by you
Young summers and early times
Reaching out for troubled kinds
Making due with all you know and searching for your way to go

In every corner of my mind you’re here
And you will remain
Always a part of me that’s dear
Although our picture frames
From now on won’t hold your face
You’ll have a place

Hello my mama, hello
Although it’s sad to see you go I’ll always know
That you did your best for me
Carried me from sea to sea
In between you filled me up with the stories that would make me love


Goodbye my mama, goodbye
I’ve known you all my life now it’s time to breathe a sigh
Thank you for all you’ve done
Giving all my rising suns
All the beauty and everyone and everything that means the world to me


Goodbye my mama, goodbye
