For Your Babies

You’ve got that look again
The one I hoped I had when I was a lad
Your face is just beam­ing
Your smile got me boast­ing, my pulse roller- coas­t­er­ing
Any way the four winds that blow
They’re gonna send me sail­ing home to you
Or I’ll fly with the force of a rain­bow
The dream of gold will be wait­ing in your eyes

You know I’d do most any­thing you want
Hey I, I try to give you everything you need
I can see that it gets to you
I don’t believe in many things
But in you I do

Her faith is amaz­ing
The pain that she goes through con­tained in
The hope for you
Your whole world has changed
The years spent before seem more cloudy
Than blue
In many ways your baby’s con­trolling
When you haven’t laid down for days
For the poor no time to be think­ing
They’re too busy find­ing ways

You know I’d do most any­thing you want
Hey I, I try to give you everything you need
I’ll see that it gets to you
I don’t believe in many things
But in you I do

You know I’d do most any­thing you want
Every day I, try to give you everything you
Need
We’ll always be there for you
I don’t believe in many things
But in you I do
