Bryan Duncan Every Father Is A Son Lyrics

Last updated: 06/12/2013 06:40:37 PM

Money don't grow on trees now son
Be careful about how you spend
It's one of the many things you'd say
When I was just nine or ten
Not gonna tell you twice
Before you'd explain again
And this would hurt me
More then it hurts you
I'd never believe that then
And I see in you father
I know the father son
The man who learns before me
How the race is run
I fix my gaze upon you
No seldom my two eyes
You're just behind my shoulder
So just mean what I try

You thought you knew it all too soon
Scared me to watch you grow
Hurt even more to see in you
Myself before all I know
Don't have to do what you say you'd say
I can do this all by myself
Come back to ask me anyway
When you knew you needed help

And I see every father
The proudest for the son
The man who runs before me
A torch to carry on
I fix my gaze upon you
Praying as you go
For now the father's blessing
And future seeds to sow

Every father is a son
Every son only one father
See the man I must become
When I see myself in you
Breathing life and passing on
Hard the love before they started
Blessed be the ties that bind
Between a father and a son.

And I see every father
And I see as a son
The man who runs before me
A torch to carry on
I fix my gaze upon you
The race we both must run
So little time together
As father and a son
This precious time together
As a father and a son.
