A   Mother's Way

This song was recorded by Foster and Allen for their 'Best Friends' album in 1997.  It has been included on several compilation collections since then. 

It's just a mother's way
To worry through the day
'bout every little thing, like falling off a swing
When you were out at play

The years slide quickly by
The summers seem to fly
And then you're moving on, you break out on your own
But you don't see her cry

For a while, she hides behind a smile
But then her eyes reveal she worries still to-day
Take her hand, show her you understand
A little tenderness will go a long, long way

And now the years have flown
She's sitting all alone 
With all her photographs, and memories of the past 
She's glad when you come home
