When I was your Mum


Jezebel relaxing at home

I know it sounds silly because the words of the song are not at all appropriate, but this sad song about heartbreak is the one that does it for me. As it is top of the UK charts, it keeps being played on the radio all the time and gets me going every time, as it reminds me of the week I lost my Jezzie.

 When I was your Man – Bruno Mars

I’ve changed the lyrics of the song to suit our situation and it needs to be read while listening to the song:-

When I was your Mum

Same park, but it looks just a little bit empty now.
Same walks in the park, but they just don’t seem the same.
When our friends talk about you all that it does is just tear me down
’cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name.
It all just feels like uh, uh, uh

Hmmm… too tired, too stressed to realize
that I should have spent more time with you every day,
should have given you more time and much more space,
taken you to every park ’cause all you wanted to do was play.
Now my baby is playing, but she’s playing in another place.

My dreams, my instinct, my needs and my selfish ways
brought a beautiful dog like you into my life.
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess you made.
Oooh, and it haunts me every time I close my eyes.
It all just feels like uh, uh, uh, uh

Hmmm… too tired, too stressed to realize
that I should have spent more time with you every day,
should have given you more time and much more space,
taken you to every park ’cause all you wanted to do was play.
Now my baby is playing, but she’s playing in another place.

Although it hurts,
I’ll be the first
to say that I was wrong.
Oh, I know I’m definitely too late
to try and apologize for my mistake,
but I just want you to know.

I hope you are now at peace,
I hope you have pain release.
I’d give you one more walk
just for one more day,
take you back to our park,
’cause I remember how much you loved to play.
Do all the things I should have done when I was your Mum!
Do all the things I should have done when I was your Mum!
