The Lyrics

Once upon a time, you were 25
Walking up the aisle
You made the promise of your life

Blinked twice and you were 29
Singing lullabies
And I looked up at you for the first time

Words fall short
But I am sure
There’ll never be
Anyone like you, you’re

You’re strong like your father
Even when you are scared
When I was in trouble
You never left me there
And you love like your mother
Like there’s nothing to lose
You’re an unsung hero
So I’ll sing this song for you / I’ll always sing for you / So I will sing for you

Woke up I was 21
And I fell in love
Remember how I told you that I’d

Searched the world
And found the girl
And O how she
reminds me of you, you’re

For all the times I fell down
You showed me how to stand
And when we crossed the ocean
You were my safe place to land

Been on a thousand stages
But when it’s all said and done
I hope I make you proud of
Of the man that I’ve become

So I’ll be strong like my father
Even when I am scared
And when someone’s in trouble
I’ll never leave them there
And I’ll love like my mother
Like there’s nothing to lose
You’re my unsung hero
And I sing this song for you
