Muriel's Wedding the Musical - My Mother (Eulogy) Lyrics


My mother was
Surely the best of us
Sow she’s left us its the simplest saddest truth
She’s gone away and we’re still here
I’m so ashamed

My mother was, forever generous
Gave all her time to us
Every minute, every hour
Stayed up late with us
My mother shielded us
Asking nothing in return, getting nothing in return

And now
Too late to make it right
Too late to take her side, I didn’t even try
I’ll never see her face again
But till the end of time, I’ll hold her heart in mine
My mother was selfless
All she wanted was our happiness
And we just spat it back in her face
We saw her pain and looked away
Mum I see you now, I see you clear as day

But now
Too late to make it right
Too late to take her side, I didn’t even try
I’ll never see her face again
But till the end of time, I’ll hold her heart in mine

My father was
Always acting like her presence, was an insult
Like it was so hideous, just to be with her
Luke you were a martyr to carry her
But you kicked her around
Like a politician needs a wife
Christ dad, she gave you her life
She gave her life to us, she never ever made a fuss
Look at us, all of us
So blind, so thoughtless
If only I could hug her, and tell her that I love her
Her softness, her shyness, her warm and gentle hands
I’m so tired of lies
I’m so sickened by all the pretending
I wanna live in a way, that doesn’t shame the memory of her
