My Wish – Rascal Flatts

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to

Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small

You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to

I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too


I’m Thankful – Circanineti

It’s who you are, you shine more than you realise

In a sky of stars, you’re burning brightly with your light

These tears are filling in my eyes

I’ll say: mama, papa, I’m thankful


A Song For Mama – Boyz 11 Men

Mama, Mama you know I love you (You know I love you)

Mama, Mama you’re the queen of my heart

Your love is like tears from the stars, yes it is


Mom – Garth Brooks

‘Cause there’s someone down there waiting whose only goal in life

Is making sure you’re always gonna be alright

A loving angel tender, tough and strong

It’s almost time to go and meet your mom


I Hope You Dance – Lee Ann Womack

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder

You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger

May you never take one single breath for granted

God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean

Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens


How Long Will I Love You – Ellie Goulding

How long will I love you?

As long as stars are above you

And longer if I can

How long will I need you?

As long as the seasons need to

Follow their plan


Hero – Mariah Carey

And then a hero comes along

With the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside

And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong

Mother – Sugarland

She’s your mother, you love her

There won’t be another place like her again that you call home

She stands here to help you there’s nothing she won’t do

As long as she’s alive you’re not alone

You’ve got each other, that’s your mother


Because You Loved Me – Celine Dion

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn’t speak

You were my eyes when I couldn’t see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach

You gave me faith ’cause you believed

I’m everything I am because you loved me


You’ll Be In My Heart – Phil Collins

For one so small you seem so strong

My arms will hold you

Keep you safe and warm

This bond between us can’t be broken

I will be here, don’t you cry


The Only Fan – Backstreet Boys

You showed me when I was young just how to grow

You showed me everything that I should know

You showed me just how to walk without your hands

‘Cause mom you always were the perfect fan


Time After Time – Cyndi Lauper

If you’re lost, you can look and you will find me

Time after time

If you fall, I will catch you, I’ll be waiting

Time after time


Mama – Spice Girls

Back then, I didn’t know why

Why you were misunderstood

So now, I see through your eyes

All that you did was love

Mama, I love you, Mama I care
