This is to Mother You

This is to mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to mother youThis is to be with you
To hold you and to kiss you too
For when you need me I will do
What your own mother didn’t do
Which is to mother youAll the pain that you have known
All the violence in your soul
All the ‘wrong’ things you have done
I will take from you when I am come
All mistakes made in distress
All your unhappiness
I will take away with my kiss, yes
I will give you tendernessFor child I am so glad I’ve found you
Although my arms have always been around you
Sweet bird although you did not see me
I saw you

And I’m here to mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to mother you

An old one, but a side of Sinéad that I think should be remembered, an aching, haunting tenderness and her voice that is like no other I have heard. I love this song. And the sweet, playful, joyful embrace between her and Kris Kristofferson – a friend and mentor – makes me smile.
