I listen to a song about mothers and daughters
Hey mama, is this song about you?
Hey mama, is this song about me?
I look for you in lyrics I’ve not seen
But do you look for me?

I hear you cry out in the night for ones you loved and you lost
In the darkness of your sleep
But I hear you not call out for me
Are you not lost to me?
I reach for the sweetness, the fragility
Of your strong arms

You reach out to me
But I wonder if when you hold me
You think of you
Or you think of me
