Mama Said
Metallica Lyrics


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 owed to mother
But I must find my way
Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or 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 is said is done

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still

Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave
So let this heart be still

Mama, now I'm coming home
I'm not all you wished of me
A mother's love for her son
Unspoken, and maybe
Yeah, 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
Or 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 that I'll take to my grave
Never I ask of you
But never I gave
But you gave me your emptiness that I'll take to my grave

So let this heart be still

Георгий Кировск

Мама говорила
Мама учила меня хорошему,
Говорила мне, когда я был молод:
«Сынок, твоя жизнь как открытая книга –
Не закрывай её раньше времени».
«Самое яркое пламя сгорает быстрее всего», -
Вот что я слышал от нее.
Сердце сына в долгу перед матерью,
Но я должен найти свой путь.

Отпусти мое сердце,
Позволь своему сыну вырасти.
Мама, отпусти мое сердце,
Или успокой его.

Бунтарь – моя новая фамилия,
Дикая кровь в моих венах,
Но передник вокруг моей шеи
Все еще на мне.
Я слышал, что покидать дом в раннем возрасте
Неправильно.
Я никогда не просил прощения,
Но что сделано, то сделано.

Отпусти мое сердце,
Позволь своему сыну вырасти.
Мама, отпусти мое сердце,
Или успокой его.

Я никогда не просил у тебя,
Но никогда и не давал.
Но ты оставила мне свою пустоту,
Которую я с собой в могилу несу.
Я никогда не просил у тебя,
Но никогда и не давал.
Но ты оставила мне свою пустоту,
Которую я с собой в могилу несу,
Так успокой это сердце.

Мама, я возвращаюсь домой,
Я не совсем тот, каким ты хотела видеть меня.
Но любовь матери к своему сыну,
Несомненно, помогала мне всегда.
Я недостаточно ценил твою любовь,
И все, что ты мне говорила.
Я нуждаюсь в твоих объятиях,
Но холодный камень – все, что я вижу.

Отпусти мое сердце,
Позволь своему сыну вырасти.
Мама, отпусти мое сердце,
Или успокой его.

Отпусти мое сердце,
Мама, отпусти мое сердце.
Ты никогда не отпускала его,
Так успокой это сердце.

Я никогда не просил у тебя,
Но никогда и не давал.
Но ты оставила мне свою пустоту,
Которую я с собой в могилу несу.
Я никогда не просил у тебя,
Но никогда и не давал.
Но ты оставила мне свою пустоту,
Которую я с собой в могилу несу,
Так успокой это сердце.

Imagine being James in this time, well into your 30s and already experienced being the lead in the biggest metal band of all time. You pour your heart and soul out on an intimate and personal song from a more experimental album and all your fans do is call it shit because it doesn’t sound like Master of Puppets anymore.

Load/Reload get better with age. I start to relate more and more with the songs and their decision to move away from thrash as I get older. I’m glad to see others feel the same as time goes on

Abner Devereaux

I agree with you totally. Load/Reload have aged like the finest wine.

J E

@Davi Elias this ain't one of them

DudeHanzen420

@K Z they honestly are lmao the biggest and richest metal bands of all time as much as I hate to admit itt but they are.

Nyiar

@K Z what else band is bigger than this?

Mr. IIconic

@Bitsob Metallica is loyal to their hearts and the realness of the music, not to a genre.

SEMPRE QUE VOCÊ LER OS COMENTÁRIOS EU ESTAREI LA

This song has a strong message, it talks about a son who loses his mother early and needs to mature early, and that son is James Hetfield, something he needed to overcome and move on in life, a lot of Metallica fans call this album crap , unfortunately, there are few people who see much beyond music, Mama Said is a work of art that few musicians, even rock musicians, are able to produce such art and express the strong message it has, Metallica is more than a band from Heavy and Thrash Metal, it's the band of life!🙏🔥❤

Ouvia muito esse video clip em janeiro de 2009 no DVD the videos numa época em que eu estava fora da minha cidade ,viajando a passeio no sertão da bahia numa casinha simples onde eu assistia o DVD num play 2 em uma tv de tubo de 15 polegadas. Ficava alternando entre esse DVD do the videos do metallica,o DVD de um documentário sobre o grunge chamado Hype e o jogo do sniper elite. Só voltei com meus pais de volta 3 meses depois em abril. Ouvia muito screaming trees tbm nessa viagem. Bons tempos.
