Dear momma,
you are the reason the reason I cry,
I’ve known you longer than anyone else,
You are the reason,
I survived,
I have a ton of friends,
and I know I have my boyfriend,
but for some reason,
when I feel like I am about to die,
I go to you,
you are the reason I survived,
and momma I love you….

drove me to all my dance lessons,
told me it was gonna be alright,
steered me away from dating all the bad boys,
you knew they were gonna break my heart into a million shattered pieces
even though you knew I could go through it
it would just be more of a mess for me to pick up off the floor
and even though I slam doors,
and scream to you that I hate you,
momma I gotta tell you,

chorus:
Dear momma,
I was in the dark for so long,
Anxiety and depression were my only friends,
I got used to not eating anything at all,
and I was miserable the whole way through
but you,
you helped me through it all,
and even when I slam doors,
and put up a fight,
you always hold me tight,
and tell me it will be alright,
and because of that,
I gotta tell you,
I love you

Dear momma,
you are the reason I laugh,
dear momma,
you are the reason I trust,
dear momma you are the reason I cry sometimes,
not gonna lie,
but at the end of the day,
I can say you blow my heart away,
without your love and care,
I would be crying in a gutter somewhere,
with my make up off,
and my hair untied,
without you all I would ever do,
is cry.

chorus:
Dear momma,
I was in the dark for so long,
Anxiety and depression were my only friends,
I got used to not eating anything,
and I was miserable,
but you,
you helped me through it all,
and even when I slam doors,
and put up a fight,
you always hold me tight,
and tell me it will be alright,
and because of that,
I gotta tell you,
I love you
