Family and getting older

lyrics

Thank you, for making it so bearable, you know
The best medicine, is a smile
I can barely see your features now, but they still
Make living, worth my while it’s
Good to know I did something that the
Future will reflect, that the future will remember

When your parents had you
And I saw your open eyes I
Knew that it was worth it
Worth the whole of all my life

I think I’m leavin in the mornin
I can feel it in my bones
I won’t be here long regardless
I can feel that call from home
So till I leave, won’t you hold my hand?

I have seen the world change around me, I’ve lived
Millions, of diffrent lives
I was once at the very edge of greatness I guess
You wouldn’t, believe me if you tried
I regret the little things
Shots I wish I’d taken, places that I’ve never been

But when your parents had you
And I saw your open eyes I
Knew that it was worth it
Worth the whole of all my life

You only get one legacy
You only get one name
You can live a thousand, live a thousand lives
But never do a thing

History has a short short memory, but it
Will remember me

Cause when your parents had you
And I saw your ocean eyes I
Knew that it was worth it
Worth the whole of all my life
