You'll Be A Man, My Son

DAD

When you look back and see

You might remember only me

But it was her who tied your shoes for you

And it he was her I needed too


'It's the time of your life' they say

''Oh to be young again

You're the oldest you've been and the youngest you'll be

Don't wish it away, cause you'll look back and see…’


And when I look back and I remember

Yeah the grass was green the sun was bright

But I know when I see your head down,

Your worry your doubt

It seems like there's no way out

No way out


Soon you’ll be fighting on his own

And these battles will be done

The boy will be gone but life carries on

Life carries on

You’ll be a man my son

You’ll be a man my son


BOY

A super hero with no powers?

What’s a giant that’s not tall?

Whatever it is

I want him on my side

I want him on my side


DAD And I look back and I remember Yeah the grass was green the sun was bright But I know when I see your head down,


BOY (Same Time) You could fix anything but you’ve not got much But now it’s only me I see your head down.


BOTH

Your worry your doubt

I seems like there's no way out

No way out


BOY

Now he’s fighting on his own

And all these battles he has won

His wife was gone but life carried on


DAD You’ll be a man my son

BOY

I want you by my side

DAD You’ll be a man my son There should be greener grass and warmer sun There should be endless summers and more to come There should be life out there you want to live There should be snow but never rain There should be comfort and never pain There’s people there who want to give you What you need But there’s just me But there’s just me


BOY (Same Time)

I keep my head down

When you’re not around

I want to make you proud

When we were a three,

I know that she...

gave you

what you need

But there’s just me

But there’s just me


BOTH:

Soon he’ll be fighting on his own

And these battles will be done

The boy will be gone but life carries on

Life carries on


FATHER

You’ll be a man my son

BOY

I want you by my side

FATHER

You’ll be a man my son
