Bye Mom Lyrics – Chris Janson

Bye mom
That’s what I said at five years old the first day of school
Already then I thought I was way too cool
I thought I had it figured out
And I didn’t know a thing
Bye mom
Don’t worry ’bout me, I’ll see you at three at the bus stop
And I know that you’ll be right there to pick me up
In the old truck

I know that’s just the way it is
When you think you grown but you’re still a kid
And you don’t know you’re somebody
That somebody loves more than themselves
And there’s a beauty in the innocence
Of not knowing that the time they’ve spent
Is more than one could ask for
And that’s a special kind of love
And it’s only there for a lifetime, then it’s gone

And it’s bye mom
You can drop me off down the block around the corner square
Oh, my bud is waiting for me just over there
I’ll see you later on
Bye mom
It’s a cap and a gown in a brand new town eight hours away
Don’t cry, I’ll be okay

I know that’s just the way it is
When you think you grown but you’re still a kid
And you don’t know you’re somebody
That somebody loves more than themselves
And there’s a beauty in the innocence
Of not knowing that the time they’ve spent
Is more than one could ask for
And that’s a special kind of love
And it’s only there for a lifetime, then it’s gone

And it’s bye mom

And bye mom, I sand a million morning at the Brine Street baptist church
And bye mom, I waited hours and hours till she got off of work
And bye mom, I stood and cried and laid a rose onto her grave
And bye mom, were the last words that I spoke before we sang Amazing Grace

I know that’s just the way it is
When you’re all grown up but you’re still a kid
And you realize you’re somebody
That somebody loves more than themselves
And there’s a beauty in the innocence
Of not knowing that the time they’ve spent
Is more than one could ask for
And that’s a special kind of love
And it’s only there for a lifetime, then it’s gone
It’s only there for a lifetime, then it’s gone

And it’s bye mom
Yeah, bye mom
