This Is To Mother You lyrics

by Sinead O'Connor

This is to mother you 
To comfort you and get you through 
Through when your nights are lonely 
Through when your dreams are only blue 
This is to mother you 

This is to be with you 
To hold you and to kiss you too 
For when you need me I will do 
What your own mother didn't do 
Which is to mother you 

All the pain that you have known 
All the violence in your soul 
All the 'wrong' things you have done 
I will take from you when I come 

All mistakes made in distress 
All your unhappiness 
I will take away with my kiss, yes 
I will give you tenderness 

For child I am so glad I've found you 
Although my arms have always been around you 
Sweet bird although you did not see me 
I saw you 

And I'm here to mother you 
To comfort you and get you through 
Through when your nights are lonely 
Through when your dreams are only blue 
This is to mother you...
