lyrics

Hey Mama, I am leaving, I’ve grown up can’t you see?
I am a woman, my mind’s made up, won’t you please trust in me?
I’ve been a lucky girl, and I’ve been raised well
So as I turn in the night, raise my hand and I’m gone
Please don’t cry, I won’t be gone long
Oh Mama, I am leaving, but even as I go
I am traveling back to the place I call home
And I will phone you soon

When I was little, just a young girl, you said this to me
When you’re older, you’ve got to travel, there’s just so much to see
I watch you climb so high, slide down the other side
And I know in my heart, that some day you may fly
And I will cry but you’ll go

So Mama, I want to thank you, for all you’ve done for me
As I travel across the skies and open seas
I will hear your voice, as clear as it can be
When I turn the wrong way, down some dark, shaded street
I will heed you then
So Mama, I am leaving, but even as I go
I am traveling back to the place I call home
And I will phone you soon
