I spent my whole life watching you from a distance
Scared to get close, in case I wasn't quite what you wanted
Looking back on a better day
When I saw the whole world from your shoulders
I can't remember the last time I felt I could fly
Like nothing could touch us

Just for one night
I wish the world could feel no pain, feel no sorrow
Just for one night
Just for tonight
Make this go away

But it's time to grow up, it's time to face responsibility
Enough with this deja vu
I can't keep running back to my memories
Because without you in my life I wouldn't be who I am today
But please don't leave me yet
I'm not as strong as I think I am

Just for one night
I wish the world could feel no pain, feel no sorrow
Just for one night
Just for tonight
I wish this would go away
But it won't

Old man you
don't look so good these days
But you're the same to me
Your mind and body
might be failing you
But you're still the man I looked up to
And that will never change
I won't stop looking up to you
