If I was your mother
Would you let me hold your hand
Would you say you were my baby
Would you always be my friend
If I was your mother
Could I teach you what's right
Could I tell you stories, maybe tuck you in
And kiss you sweet goodnight

Tell me what I got to do
To make my life mean more to you
I could get so close it's true
If I was your mother
Would you always believe me
'cause I'd wake up in the middle of the night
Just to see if you need me
Tell me there's no other
To who you're telling secrets
And would you tell me 'bout all the boys
You been bringing home to meet me

Tell me what I got to do
To make my life mean more to you
I could get so close it's true
If I was your
Tell me who I got to be
To make you a part of me
There's no one else you'll ever need
If I was your mother, mother
If I was your mother, mother

When love is blood you're never on trial
It don't get deeper than a mother and child
Oh, baby I got to get that close to you

Tell me what I got to do
To make my life mean more to you
I could get so close it's true
If I was yours
Tell me who I got to be
To make you a part of me
There's no one else you'd ever need
If I was your mother, mother
If I was your mother, mother
Yeah
If I was your mother, mother
If I was your mother, mother
If I was your mother, mother

If I was your mother, mother [Repeat: x6]

    General Commenti thought it was pretty obvious. the song is to jon's daughter, who was just born at the time ( mid 90's)
    look at the lyrics:
    "Would you always believe me, 'Cause I'd wake up in the middle Of the night
    Just to see if you need me"

    "would you tell me
    'Bout all the boys you been Bringing home to meet me"- its to his little girl. sweet :-)
