about

"When my oldest son left home 'to make it on his own' - I thought I was ready for it.

Wrong! "

lyrics

One day I hope you see more than you now see in me
One day I hope you'll understand
All the things I do are driven by my love for you
and now your life is slipping from my hands
Every minute of your life, I’ve been in it
and now this knife that cut you free
has cut me deeper than I’ve known
I thought that time was on our side
thought my eyes were open wide
but now I look and see how old you’ve grown

Time goes quickly, I never could keep track
It seems that I spend more and more time looking back

One day I hope you find the happiness and peace of mind
That’s made my life worthwhile through all these years
It seems like we’ve come so far
from who we were to who we are
I’m sorry but I just can’t hide the tears
I’ll accept that you’re gone and my life stumbles on
You go your separate way and I start again
But please believe me, as it’s time to leave me
I’m your father, I’ll always be your friend

Time goes quickly, I never could keep track
It seems that I spend more and more time looking back

All my life I’ll miss you
All my love goes with you
I just never thought this partnership would end
But please believe me, as it’s time to leave me
I’m your father, I’ll always be your friend.
