I was trying to write a song similar to There Goes My World by Kenny Chesney. I always soothe my son by saying, "Mama's got you." So that also inspired this song/poem.

It's 3 a.m. and you're crying again.
Baby it's alright, Mama's got you.

I wanna see the world like you.
Everything's exciting and brand new.
I wanna see the world like you.

You let go and take those first steps.
And part of me has to let go too.

When you fall I'm always there for you.
Baby it's alright, Mama's got you.

One blink and you're headed to prom with her.
But that silly little girl broke your heart.
You ran home crying, "Mama what's wrong with me?!"
Baby it's alright, Mama's got you.

One blink and you're standing at the end of the aisle.
I love that girl because she always makes you smile.

I want to see the world like you.
Your love's exciting and brand new.
I want to see the world like you.

One blink and my time is almost through.
I'm lying in bed holding hands with you.

It's Alright Mama, I got you.
I want to see the world like you.
This journey will be exciting and brand new.
I want to see the world like you...
