Lyrics

A Mother's Tears

Written By: Rick Amburgey

Verse 1:
She woke him up
Middle of the night
Said "Honey get the car"
Cause I think it's time
She'd been waiting
For that moment all her life
No words could explain
What she was feeling inside

Chorus 1:
She cried a mother's tears
From a mother's eyes
It was a mother's love
For a mother's child
All her hopes, all her fears
In a mother's tears

Verse 2:
A week past sixteen
She's a little bit late
Mama's nervously praying
That her little girl's okay
"Lord please bring her home tonight"
As she hears her daughter
Pull into the drive

Chorus 2:
She cries a mother's tears
From a mother's eyes
It's a mother's love
For a mother's child
All her hopes, all her tears
In a mother's tears

Verse 3:
It hadn't been that long
Since their first date
But she watched her husband
Give her daughter away
Proud to the mother
Of the beautiful bride
As she heard her promise
To love him for all times

Chorus 3:
She cried a mother's tears
From a mother's eyes
It was a mother's love
For a mother's child
All her hopes, all her fears
In a mother tears

Bridge:
And she never understood
Why her Mama cried
Until the night

Chorus 4:
She cried a mother's tears
From a mother's eyes
It was a mother's love
For a mother's child
All of hopes, all her fears
Would always be there
In a mother's tears

A mother's tears
A mother's tears
Love was always there
In a mother's tears

Proud of Me

Written By: Rick Amburgey, Bob Turk

Verse 1:
You stood in the shadows
As I dreamed my dreams
Of everything
That I wanted to be
You left this world too soon
To see those dreams come true
But I know you're in Heaven
Watching over me

Chorus:
When you look down
Do you like what you see?
Do you like what I've become?
And are you proud of me?
Do you laugh? Do you cry?
Has everything turned out right?
All I wanna do is make you
Proud of me

Verse 2:
I look at the stars sometimes
And I wonder where you are
So high and shining so bright
Like an angel standing guard
Sometimes I could swear
That you're still here with me
Cause you're in my heart
You're in everything I do

Repeat Chorus Twice

Tag:
All I wanna do is make you
Proud of me
Proud of me

Nearest Distant Shore

Written By: Rick Amburgey

Verse 1:
Life can feel like an ocean
So deep and so wide
You're not sure you can make it
To the other side
It's easy to lose faith
Easier to lose lope
When the night is dark
And you're all alone, but

Chorus:
On the nearest distant shore
That's where I'll be waiting
To keep you safe and warm
It's taken a long time
But that's what forever is for
And that's what you will find
On the nearest distant shore

Verse 2:
There's been pain and heartache
You've seen along the way
Enduring the rain
Hoping for a brighter day
Keep looking ahead
Because there's land in sight
Don't give up the fight now
Don't give up the fight

Repeat Chorus
