A Good Song

I always think of my mom when I hear John Mayer's song Daughters. I'll never forget when she heard it for the first time, we were all sitting in the living room at my parent's house. My mom listened to the words and then told my dad to listen to it, I can't really describe the moment but it was just very sweet. It was a period of about four minutes where I sat close with my mom and dad and we listened to the song and then all smiled about it together. Now everytime I hear this song, I think of her and smile.

I know a girl

She puts the color inside of my world
But she's just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change
And I've done all I can
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hands
Now I'm starting to see
Maybe it's got nothing to do with me
Fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too


Oh, you see that skin?
It's the same she's been standing in
Since the day she saw him walking away
Now she's left
Cleaning up the mess he made


So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too


Boys, you can break
You'll find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong
And boys soldier on
But boys would be gone without the warmth from
A womans good, good heart


On behalf of every man
Looking out for every girl
You are the god and the weight of her world
So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too
