Musgraves, Kacey - Mother Lyrics

Bursting with empathy, I'm feeling everything
The weight of the world on my shoulders
Hope my tears don't freak you out
They're just kinda coming out
It's the music in me and all of the colors

Wish we didn't live, wish we didn't live so far from each other
I'm just sitting here thinking 'bout the time that's slipping
And missing my mother, mother
And she's probably sitting there
Thinking 'bout the time that's slipping
And missing her mother, mother
And she's probably sitting there
Thinking 'bout the time that's slipping
And missing her mother, mother

  2. Weird Seagull

    Bursting with empathy
    I’m feeling everything
    The weight of the world on my shoulders

    Hope my tears don’t freak you out
    They’re just kinda coming out
    It’s the music in me and all of the colors

    Wish we didn’t live
    Wish we didn’t live so far
    From eachother
    I’m just sitting here thinking bout the time that’s slipping and missing my mother

    And she’s probably sitting there thinking bout the time that’s slipping and missing her mother

    (This is a short song and probably pretty easy to memorize but hi)

  3. Benjamin Hurtt

    Beautiful song hard to believe she was on acid when she wrote it. If you don't believe me just Google it it will come right up.

  4. Jules taylor

    I just love this!!

  5. Tricia Cherie

    I miss my mom who abandoned me after I took my brothers side after his nasty kills me every day

  14. bry L

  18. brigmund freud

    My daughter moved away for college and she sent me this yesterday. I have listened to it over and over again. Wish it were longer.

  19. Lex Bassin

    Damn. I cried.

  20. Audra Rouse

    Beautiful song.

  21. Jake Bogaski

    And to think she wrote this while tripping on LSD. What an artistic spiritual vision she had.

  22. Juliette Anne

  26. Monica Vega

  27. Gabby Vasquez

    My Heart. It's too early to be crying 😭❤

  28. Sara Currin

  29. Rapn Frizzy

    Fun fact she wrote this on lsd

  30. Priscilla

    How was she not sobbing while singing this song. 😥 Beautiful.

  31. Wibble Wobble

    All this mush and i'm over here with a mother who sold me to a pedophilic cult at age 2. Be grateful if you have a decent mother peeps, cos not all of us are that lucky :/

  32. Kasey Vogl

    I share I name with her and I’m not proud

  33. Valeria Rodriguez channel

    I see what the song is trying to say but I really hate her tune and stuff it sounds really bad all together I don't know how you would cry like wtf

    Hunter Grummert

    Valeria Rodriguez Girl...get some empathy

  34. Valeria Rodriguez channel

    How does this make u cry

  35. Marilyn Moon

    Kacey is literally an angel ✨

  36. Leila Arismany

    I don’t think I’ve ever gone through this song without crying

  37. Kennedy Ray

    this is so sweet

  38. Whatever Goes

    This popped up on my mom's birthday

  39. mrjamila88

    Omg 😢😢❤️❤️

  40. xKamineko


  41. Your awesome

    This is why she got the album of the year award at the Grammys, a 1 minute song is making us all cry 😢

  42. Sean Coker

    I sang this song for my mom on mother's day, she lost her mom when she was 16. I never met my grandma. It took me like 8 practice takes before I could sing this without crying, but my mom was bawling by that final line.

  43. iwastubed96

    I was anticipating to see her mother's face but it was blocked by an ad for two recommended videos. I kept reversing to see if if might make any difference but it was no use. YouTube or this account needs to fix this. Ruins the whole purpose of the reveal part.

    S. S

    It only shows her mom's face for a few seconds at the end, and then she turns back towards Casey..Try expanding the screen to see if that helps..I had fun portraying her mom in the video:)

  44. Connor Kirk

    The touching reveal of her mom at the end entirely blocked by an unremovable ad 😍 perfect


    I can’t hahaha😂

    Juju Goes

    you just stop that, Connor Kirk! Damn your eyes, I pissed myself!

    kasha kolb

    arslan haider

    @Jas W In sooo much pain no words can describe.
    That's what keeping me alive she wanted me to be a successful person, but it don't matter anymore

  81. Vimalan Paul R

    I wish I could understand this song as well as women do

  82. A Hall

    😭😢😭 OMG I just heard this song for the first time & I'm sitting here just crying. 😭 My mother passed over 30 yrs ago & never knew her mother. My mother was abandoned by her mother when she was 3 month's old. This song has totally touched every piece of my heart. ❤

  83. sunny sunshinee

    Crying my eyes out 😔💚

  84. Carson Graham

    this made me miss kaceys mother

  85. Mia V

    "I'm just sitting here thinking bout the time that's slipping and missing my mother.
    And she's probably sitting there thinking bout the time that's slipping and missing her mother."

    Haunting. Will never not make me cry.

    Chelsey Bio

    Im pregnant rn n my babys father isnt involved. So im doing this all alone. My mom lives over 1000 miles away so its exspecially difficult cuz i wisg she was here for this beautiful experience. Not gonna lie i cried to this song

  95. Margo Ts

    This makes me miss my mom sooo much. I lost her when I was 15. Somehow right now I’m missing those moments that never even happened - like going shopping, drinking, karaoke-ing with her. Fighting and arguing about things in life and love. Her consoling me and telling me everything will be alright when my first love left me. Sigh... I miss you soo much mom. I love you.

  96. I Hate Jews

    Her voice is stupid. I’m pretty sure she is 12 years old

  97. Rodrigo Colina.

    <3 #Venezuela

  98. Mike Capo

    This video is so beautiful!
