The Heart In The Other Side

Why are you so sad?

My friends always ask me that

You should be happy you are here.

I am, but something is not right.

 

I moved so fast here,

that I could still feel

my mom' arms that keep me safe

of everything and everyone

 

I had to move away

because in Mexico I wouldn't have a future

It was hard to say goodbye

because I came here alone

 

We are both in different sides,

just because I have to study

going to college and all that stuff

but I still need my mom
