“A Song For Dad”

Earlier I mentioned a song by Keith Urban, “A Song For Dad”.  I spoke about how Tyler made me a “family video” for Father’s Day a few years ago and used this as the “soundtrack”.

Many of you have mentioned that you had never heard this song and what a wonderful song it is.

I agree.  I have had it on my iPod, iPhone and iLike for a while now.  Although at times, it can make my eyes itch and well up…must be allergies.

Anyway, in honor of all of us “Sons” and their “Pops”, I thought I would post the lyrics to the song.

And if you do not have this song, it is worth the $1.29 or whatever on iTunes.  If nothing else, listening to it may bring back some nice memories for you, or make some new ones, and that alone is worth the $1.29.

CAUTION: Watch out for those allergies!!!

“Song For Dad”

Lately I’ve been noticing
I say the same things he used to say
And I even find myself acting the very same way
I tap my fingers on the table
To the rhythm in my soul
And I jingle the car keys
When I’m ready to go
When I look in the mirror
He’s right there in my eyes
Starin’ back at me and I realize

The older I get
The more I can see
How much he loved my mother and my brother and me
And he did the best that he could
And I only hope when I have my own family
That everyday I see
A little more of my father in me

There were times I thought he was bein’
Just a little bit hard on me
But now I understand he was makin’ me
Become the man he knew that I could be
In everything he ever did
He always did with love
And I’m proud today to say I’m his son
When somebody says I hope I get to meet your dad
I just smile and say you already have

The older I get
The more I can see
How much he loved my mother and my brother and me
And he did the best that he could
And I only hope when I have my own family
That everyday I see
A little more of my father in me

He’s in my eyes
My heart, my soul
My hands, my pride
And when I feel alone

And I think I can’t go on
I hear him sayin’ “Son you’ll be alright”
Everything’s gonna be alright”
Yes it is

The older I get
The more I can see
That he loved my mother and my brother and me
And he did the best that he could
And I only hope when I have my own family
That everyday I see
Oh I hope I see
I hope everyday I see
A little more of my father in me

A little more of my father in me
I hope everyday I see in me
In me
In me
I hope everyday I see

A little more of my father in me
