Listen to Austin Mahone’s Emotional Song for his Grandma, “Not Far” (LYRICS)

By  | 

Austin Mahone has been a song-making machine this year. Between “Dirty Work,” “Do It Right,” and “On Your Way,” there definitely hasn’t been a shortage of tunes for Mahomies to jam out to this year. But nothing, we repeat, nothing, Austin has released was even close to being as emotional as his latest song.

“Not Far” was written in honor of the singer’s grandmother (aka Mema) who passed away three years ago. The 19-year-old singer introduced the track to fans by saying, “I hope this song reminds of the good times you had with someone that you may have lost too.”



It’s clear from the lyrics (found below) and the montage video he created that he and his grandma were extremely close, and her death still obviously affects him greatly. We love you, Austin!

Only if you could see me now
I hope that you’d be proud of
You told me to keep my feet right on the ground
Even when my head was in the clouds, you loved me
Cause every time I fall you pick me up and I feel better
And all the things you told me that are holding me forever
Your smiling telling me I know it
And any time I needed you you’d be right there whenever
I’ll always hold the memories of times we had together
I’m praying like that you still see me
If I could spend another time with you
With you, with you, with you
Then I would tell you everything, you already know
Already know, already know

I have so many things to say
But I’m sure that you already know that I miss you
Wo-oh
Smile and my world is a better thing
Cause even though you’re not here with me, I know that you’re not that far
You’re not far, not far



You picked me up every day right after school
I know that I would always thank you for everything
You told me that I can always count on you
And even though that I would act a fool you loved me, loved me

Cause every time I fall you pick me up and I feel better
And all the things you told me that are holding me forever
Your smiling telling me I know it
And any time I needed you you’d be right there whenever
I’ll always hold the memories of times we had together
I’m praying like that you still see me
If I could spend another time with you
With you, with you, with you
Then I would tell you everything, you already know
Already know, already know

I have so many things to say
But I’m sure that you already know that I miss you
Wo-oh
Smile and my world is a better thing
Cause even though you’re not here with me, I know that you’re not that far



With never hours in the clock
You put my life together when
No one seems to fall apart
And my heart the same
It sounds like this wouldn’t need you
You always knew just what to say
And now I hope that you can hear me
But I really miss you

I have so many things to say
But I’m sure that you already know that I miss you
Wo-oh
Smile and my world is a better thing
Cause even though you’re not here with me, I know that you’re not that far
