Why My Mom Lies

Ask my Mom how she is
My mom, she tells a lot of lies
she never did before
but from now until she dies
she'll tell a whole lot more
Ask my mom how she is
and because she cannot explain
she will tell a little lie
Because she cannot describe the pain
Ask my mom how she is
She'll say 'I'm alright'
if that's the truth
then tell me why does she cry each night
Ask my mom how she is
she seems to cope so well
she didn't have a choice you see
Nor the strength to yell
Ask my mom how she is
"I'm fine, I'm well, I'm coping"
For God's sake mom just tell the truth
Just say your heart is broken
She'll love me all her life
I loved her all of mine
But if you ask her how she is
She'll lie and say I'm fine
I am here in heaven
I cannot hug from here
If she lies - don't listen
Hug her and hold her near
On the day we meet again
We'll smile and I'll be bold
I'll say your're lucky to get in here mom,
With all the lies you told.
