We dreamed a dream - woke up and lived it
We had the music in our hands
The drops of rain - became a river
And now it's time to end this dance
- So thank you

My mamma said that the best thing in life was getting me a love
somebody higher than anything else in this world, baby
My mamma said that she would give her life up for me

My mamma said that the worst thing in life was getting used to love
somebody higher than anything else in this world, baby
Knowing you're going to
Knowing you're going to lose it all

Mamma don't leave
Don't go
Don't run
Don't hide
Don't cry
Don't ever feel scared now
Mamma just crossed just crossed to the parallel world
She crossed she crossed to the multiverse
Circling protons - soul vibrations
Circling neutrons - soul vibrations
Mamma just crossed just crossed to the parallel world
She crossed she crossed to the multiverse

And now you're lying there
taking your last breath
I'm holding back the tears
Oh mamma don't die

My mamma said that the best thing in life was getting me a love
somebody higher than anything else in this world, baby
My mamma said that she would give her life up for me

My mamma said that the worst thing in life was getting used to love
somebody higher than anything else in this world, baby
Knowing you're going to
Knowing you're going to lose it all

My mamma said...

Mamma hold on
Give in
Let go
Release yourself from everything out there
Mamma just crossed just crossed to the parallel world
She crossed she crossed to the multiverse
Circling electrons - soul vibrations
Circling electrons - all vibrations
Mamma just crossed just crossed to the parallel world
She crossed she crossed to the multiverse

And now you're lying there
taking your last breath
I'm holding back the tears
Oh mamma don't die

My mamma said that the best thing in life was getting me a love
somebody higher than anything else in this world, baby
My mamma said that she would give her life up for me

My mamma said...

    General CommentIt reminds me of when I lost my mother. Great music sets free emotions and this song definately has such an impact on me.

    General CommentIt definitely has to do with the loss of a maternal figure and how a "she" and a "he" react to it. While she grieves by remembering the good lessons mamma taught her, he accepts it by just convincing himself that mamma has just gone somewhere else.

    But it could also be about a girl blaming his boyfriend for her mamma's death, possibly for not being able to represent what mamma had wished for her daughter.

    Regardless, very nice song indeed

    Song MeaningThis is taken from Wikipedia, so I don't know how true it is.

    "The song is about religion versus Quantum Physics. Lene (religion) describes the loss of her mother by feelings and emotions. Rene (QP) descibes life as circuling neutrons, electrons, protons and in Quantum Physics time is non existing. It all disappears in the multiverse."

    It makes sense. She's talking about "somebody higher" and he's talking about science.

    My OpinionWhatever the meaning is, the best thing is this track has proved again that they are more than "Barbie Band". In a recent concert while she sang it she had watery eyes and wanted the people to be quiet. Maybe it was about her mother!
