These new age books on parenting,
they keep flying off the shelves
while all the kids of readers
sit home alone raising themselves.

all the time we waste
we work ourselves into graves.
we can't go back and make it up
so we just do our best to move on.

The thing you have to realize
about my old man,
is he breaks his back to raise 4 kids
and he does the best he can.

But what is it all for?
And what if we need more?
He can't go back and make it up,
so he just does his best to move on.

My mom she spent a year
searching for God
it nearly killed her.
she kicked and screamed all the way
to the hospital
as the charcoal filled her.
she thought no one cared.
but I never been so scared.

I can't go back and make it up to her
so I'll do my best to move on.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful.

    It makes me cry.

    Can anyone listen to this song and not cry? At least a little inside?

    I think not.
