  1. metallica'nın load albümünden (1996) şarkısı. sözleriyle ve enstrümanlarıyla çok acı, çok harika bir şarkıdır. 2-3 defa james bunu tek başına akustik çalmıştır ki sesindeki acıyı duyabilirsiniz. kanımca en vurucu kısmı:

    "beni karşılaması için kollarına ihtiyacım var ama tüm gördüğüm soğuk bir kaya"

    !---- spoiler ----!

    mama, she has taught me well
    told me when i was young
    son, your life’s an open book
    don’t close it ’fore it’s done
    the brightest flame burns quickest
    that’s what i heard her say
    a son’s heart’s owed to mother
    but i must find my way

    let my heart go
    let your son grow
    mama, let my heart go
    or, let this heart be still

    “rebel,” my new last name
    wild blood in my veins
    apron strings around my neck
    the mark that still remains
    i left home at an early age
    of what i heard was wrong
    i never asked forgiveness
    but what is said is done

    let my heart go
    let your son grow
    mama, let my heart go
    or let this heart be still

    never i ask of you
    but never i gave
    but you gave me your emptiness
    i now take to my grave
    never i ask of you
    but never i gave
    but you gave me your emptiness
    i now take to my grave
    so let this heart be still

    mama, now i’m coming home
    i’m not all you wished of me
    a mother’s love for her son
    unspoken, help me be
    i took your love for granted
    and all the things you said to me
    i need your arms to welcome me
    but a cold stone’s all i see

    let my heart go
    let your son grow
    mama, let my heart go
    or let this heart be still

    let my heart go
    mama, let my heart go
    you never let my heart go
    so let this heart be still

    never i ask of you
    but never i gave
    but you gave me your emptiness
    i now take to my grave
    never i ask of you
    but never i gave
    but you gave me your emptiness
    i now take to my grave
    so let this heart be still

  2. ingilizce bilmeyen annemi bile duygulandıran şarkı. sözlerinin ne anlama geldiğini falan da söylemedim.
    kısaca, çok acı bir şarkıdır kendisi. james'in hikayesini bilenler daha bir duygulanır.
