"A Fathers Way" as written by and Seal Samuel Chris Bruce....
I build a fence around you in a father’s way
I try to feel what it is you’ll be going through
Co’s I’ve played many ways
When you grow, how much will it take to slow you down…
Half the way?

Do my best to feed you and I do what’s right
I try to find the words that I’ll say to you
When you come home tonight
And if so, how hard will we cry before our sound
Fades away?

One day when the fence is not so high
The road you took
How far will you go?
How high will you climb?
And when all in life’s unfair
Are you strong enough to find another way, find another way
find another way?

A Father’s way

I build a fence around you in a father’s way
Just like the one who used to preach to me
Now I’ve become that way
But you know
How soft now the hand that used to strike
To the heart

One day when the fence is not so high
The road you took
How far will you go?
How high will you climb?
And when all in life’s unfair
Are you strong enough to find another way, find another way
find another way?

There’s no way
You will stay
There’s no way
I know you
There’s no way
You will stay
There’s no way
I know you.

    General CommentI can't believe no one commented about this song yet. Glad to be the first, anyway. This song fits perfectly the movie "Pursuit of Happyness". Great father-son dedication explaining the way of life.
