Verse 1:

I was over at Mama’s just the other day
Lot of pent-up emotions, had so much to say
Over biscuits and coffee, through a whole lot of tears
I think I wore out my poor Mama’s ears

Verse 2:
She listened intently right where we sat
Mama’s always been really, really good at that
Then touching my face, she looked me square in the eyes
And said “Love of my life, take your Mama’s advice”


Chorus:
And she said “BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED
Honey, don’t be thinking that the grass is greener on the other side
Just give those troubles to the Lord, He’ll always understand
And help you turn those broken dreams into your greatest source of pride”

Verse 3:
She said “I pray, every day, you’ll give Him your life
Cause He’s already won the wars you’re trying to fight
Plant your feet in God’s Word, let him tend to your cares
Grow in his grace and find wisdom there”


Verse 4:
She stood by her window gazing up at the sky
A smile on her face, a loving light in her eys
As as I thought on all she said I soon realized
These words Mama spoke were to be highly prized

Chorus:
And Mama said “BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED
Honey, don’t be thinkin’ that the grass is greener on the other side
Just give those troubles to the Lord, He’ll always understand
And help you turn those broken dreams into your greatest source of pride”
