Artist/Band: Metallica
Lyrics for Song: Mama Said
Lyrics for Album: Load [1996]



Mama, she has taught me well

Told me when I was young

"Son, your life's an open book

Don't close it 'fore its done"

"The brightest flame burns quickest"

That's what I heard her say

A son's heart's owned to mother

But I must find my way



Let my heart go

Let your son grow

Mama, let my heart go

Let this heart be still

Yeah, still



Rebel, my new last name

Wild blood in my veins

Apron strings around my neck

The mark that still remains

Left home at an early age

Of what I heard was wrong

I never asked forgiveness

But what I said is done



Let my heart go

Let your son grow

Mama, let my heart go

Let this heart be still



Never I ask of you

But never I gave

But you gave me your emptiness I now take to my grave

Never I ask of you

But never I gave

But you gave me your emptiness I now take to my grave

So let this heart be still



Mama, now I'm coming home

I'm not all you wished of me

But a mother's love for her son

Unspoken, help me be

I took your love for granted

And all the things you said to me

I need your arms to welcome me

But a cold stone's all I see



Let my heart go

Let your son grow

Mama, let my heart go

Let this heart be still



Let my heart go

Mama, let my heart go

You never let my heart go

So let this heart be still



Never I ask of you

But never I gave

But you gave me your emptiness I now take to my grave

Never I ask of you

But never I gave

But you gave me your emptiness I now take to my grave

So let this heart be still
