Oh Mama

Music and lyrics by Claudia Anderson

My first lullaby
Before I was born
Alone in the womb
Curled around myself
All night I heard
The sound of your heart
I fell wildly in love with your song

Oh Mama, hold me tight
I don’t want to be alone tonight
Oh Mama, hold me close
Hold me ‘til I’m all right

In the morning of my life
I ran into the world
Brimming with hope
Came home to catch my breath
A child creates a home
Deep inside her self
But I still long for your lullaby song

Oh Mama, hold me tight
I don’t want to be alone tonight
Oh Mama, hold me close            
Hold me ‘til I’m all right

In grey, shadowed dark
Yearning for sleep
Pining in my soul
Imagining a touch
Sing my own lullaby
Silence haunts me now
I still long for a lullaby song
