There will be crying,
being the man that you should.
But, always be trying,
to see all the bad and the good.
And yours is a promising future,
but, know if it all were to fade.
But a proud father of me
you have already made.

And I'll try to be,
all of the answers that you'd ever need.
And I'll try to show,
All of the love that you need to know.

May the sparks in your eyes,
Outlive the lines on your face.
Hold on to the moments in time,
when you and I share the same space.
And thoughts of you hurt me,
but I know the feeling of wrong.
'Cause there are lessons to learn,
in all of the places I've gone.

And I'll try to be,
all of the answers you'd ever need.
And I'll try to show,
All of the love that you need to know.

So hold on to someone,
who'll love you through the hot,
and the cold.
And hold on to someone,
who'll love you,
no matter what they know.
Just hold on to someone,
who'll love you when your hot,
and when your cold.
And hold on to someone,
who'll love you,
no matter who they know.

Open your mind,
So colors of skill you embrace.
And open your eyes,
to harmony coming of age.
It won't always be easy to love,
when you give and you never get back.
But, no one's intended to die,
with their heart still intact.

And I'll try to be,
all of the answers that you'd ever need.
And I'll try to show,
All of the love that you need to know.

So take time to be still and to know,
that all of the world that you'll face.
That a proud father of me,
you have already made

    Song MeaningThe song is about the unconditional love of a father for his son - the thing that, when you're eight, you want more than anything else in the world.

    General CommentThe lyrics listed are not exactly right

    "And thoughts of you hurt me,"
    should be
    "And parts of you hurt me,"

    "that all of the world that you'll face.
    That a proud father of me,"
    should be
    "through all of the world that you'll face,
    that a proud father of me,"

    "but, know if it all were to fade.
    But a proud father of me"
    should be
    "but, know if it all were to fade,
    that a proud father of me"

    "all of the answers that you'd ever need."
    should be (each time)
    "all of the answers that you'll ever need."

    "'Cause there are lessons to learn,"
    should be
    "There are lessons to learn"

    "who'll love you when your hot,
    and when your cold."
    should be
    "who'll love you when you're hot
    and when you're cold."

    "So colors of skill you embrace.
    should be
    "So colors of skin you'll embrace."
