Oh Mother
Christina Aguilera Lyrics


Whoa, oh, yeah

She was so young with such innocent eyes
She always dreamt of a fairytale life
And all the things your money can't buy
She thought that he was a wonderful guy
Then, suddenly, things seemed to change
It was the moment she took on his name
He took his anger out on her face
She kept all of her pain locked away

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh mother, don't look back
'Cause he'll never hurt us again

So, mother, I thank you
For all you've done and still do
You got me, I got you
Together we always pull through
We always pull through
We always pull through
Oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

It was the day that he turned on his kids
That she knew she just had to leave him
So many voices inside of her head
Saying over and over and over
'You deserve much more than this.'

She was so sick of believing the lies and trying to hide
Covering the cuts and bruises (cuts and bruises)
So tired of defending her life, she could have died
Fighting for the lives of her children

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed (all of the tears you have shed)
Oh mother, don't look back
'Cause he'll never hurt us again (He'll never hurt us again)

So, mother, I thank you (thank you)
For all that you've done and still do (still do)
You got me, I got you
(Yeah, you got me, and I got you)
Together we always pull through
Oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

All of your life you have spent
Burying hurt and regret
But, mama, he'll never touch us again

For every time he tried to break you down
Just remember who's still around
It's over, and we're stronger
And we'll never have to go back again

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh mother, don't look back (Oh mother, don't look back again)
'Cause he'll never hurt us again 'Cause he'll never hurt us again)

So, mother, I thank you (And I thank you for everything you've done)
For all that you've done and still do (Together we always move on)
You got me, I got you (You got me, I got you)
Together we always pull through (always pull through)
We always pull through
We always pull through

I love you, mom

I fought for 7 years to stay alive with my ex, went through 22 stitches and 42 broken bones to keep my son safe, I will always protect my son, and I'm proud of all the strong women out there that suffer and survive keep being strong!

@Jim Chang you have obviously never been in domestic violence relationship... if it was as simple as just leaving people would.

Mickey Weister

Omg

Debbie Montague

No honey you didn't through that to keep him safe. You can tell yourself that all you want. Youv actually aided in your sons future personality disorder by allowing him to witness that. You should have pressed charges the first time and went to shelter. Staying is protecting.

Shannen Mcdonald

Shannen Mcdonald

Two of Christina Aguilera's best songs are dedicated to parents: Hurt for father and this beautiful song for mother.

Lux Tina

@LAMOROSI Originals Christina co-wrote the song and came up with the idea and the melody of the song, Linda herself said that

Chandrakant Mahapatra

'Hurt' was what she WOULD HAVE liked from her father (fictional). 'Oh Mother' was what actually happened to her mother (real).

LAMOROSI Originals

camila it was for Linda Perry's father since it's her who wrote it
