lyrics

Come home… sit alone, wait for the verdict by the phone.
Get sad… tell Dad that I’m thankful for all I’ve ever had.

Grabbed Ma, sold your car, used the money to get real far.
Sacrificed your life for your children and your wife.

You are a part of me in everything that I do.
You have a heart in me, that much is true.

So when you see that family man, hair full of rubber bands, I know.
He tells you ‘bout his pretty plan, head buried in the sand, oh no.

No jewels, indoor pools to pay for that private school.
Can’t move, too much food, nobody could the kill the mood.

You are a part of me in everything that I do.
You have a heart in me and not just the souls of my shoes.

So when you see that family man, hair full of rubber bands… I know.
He tells you ‘bout his pretty plan, head buried in the sand… oh no.
So next time you’re with your fam, staring at that Christmas ham to go.
Just think about his pretty plan, OH AND try to give a damn and show.

That’s your world and I’ll be living in mine.
I learned from all you did, and how to do it differently for me this time.
That’s your world and I’ll be living in mine. THAT’S
But you taught me how to live, and I’ll do everything that I can to give back to you sometime.
