Goodbye's (The saddest word)

(Robert John)

Mamma you gave life to me
Turned a baby into a lady
Mamma all you had to offer
Was the promise of a lifetime of love

Now I know there is no other love like a mother's
Love for her child
And I know a love so complete someday must leave
Must say goodbye

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

Mamma you gave love to me
Turned a young one into a woman
Mamma all I ever needed
Was a guarantee of you loving me

'Cause I know there is no other love like a mother's
Love for her child
And it hurts so that something so strong
Someday'll be gone
Must say goodbye

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

But the love you gave me will always live
You'll always be there every time I fall
You offered me the greatest love of all
You take my weakness and you make me strong
And I will always love you till forever comes

And when you need me
I'll be there for you always
I'll be there all life through
I'll be there this I promise you Mamma

I'll be your beacon through the darkest nights
I'll be the wings that guide your broken flight
I'll be your shelter through the raging storm
And I will love you till forever comes

Goodbye's the saddest word I'll ever hear
Goodbye's the last time I will hold you near
Someday you'll say that word and I will cry
It'll break my heart to hear you say goodbye

Till we meet again until then goodbye.
