Lyrics

One More Before You Go
Music and Lyrics by David Prince

“Ah, mom - do we always have to do this?”
I would say
As I grabbed my coat and headed for the door
“You know, I’m not a little kid
and all my friends are waiting
You don’t always have to hug me anymore.
I know you love me
And I love you, too
But I really don’t have time for this
There’s stuff I gotta do”

She said let me give you one more hug before you go
I said i’m really in a hurry, Mom
And it’s embarrassing, you know?
She said son, you’re taking all my love with you
And I want you to remember
So give me one more hug before you go

These little things we always take for granted
These little things we try to push away
These little things that we’re in such a hurry to grow out of
Are all the little things I really miss today

Well, I’m a whole lot older now
With grown boys of my own
And more, each day I’ve come to understand
How my mom would feel
As I pushed her away
And how I casually brushed her off
When she tried to hold my hand
Now I cherish every time
I get to show my sons I love them
And I’d give anything to have
My mama hug me once again

She said let me give you one more hug before you go
I said i’m really in a hurry, Mom
And it’s embarrassing, you know?
She said son, you’re taking all my love with you
And I want you to remember
So give me one more hug before you go

She said let me give you one more hug before you go
I said i’m really in a hurry, Mom
And it’s embarrassing, you know?
She said son, you’re taking all my love with you
And I want you to remember
So give me one more hug before you go
So give me one more hug before you go
