A Son of My Own

VERSE
Riding through the yard
Upon a pony with wings
He tells the wind when to blow
The birds when to sing

And when he's tuckered out
He curls up here next to me
He is the prince of the world
And I'm the king

CHORUS
So I could never love the world like you do Lord
I've seen how much it costs you and I know
That I could never love the world like you do Lord
Since I had a son of my own

VERSE
Sunlight flies through time and space
To rest in his hair
He has a smudge on his cheek
But why should he care

All the meanest dinosaurs
Are tied up with string
He tells them
He's not afraid of anything

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Yes the world is hurting
And cannot find peace
And millions of people
Are lost and in need

But I'd lock him away
And sing let him be
That's just what I'd do
If it was all up to me

VERSE
But someday soon he'll choose
What kind of life he will make
He'll have to follow his heart
And I'll need you that day

Promise me you'll teach me how
I'll ever let go
Now that I have
A son of my own
A son of my own

No I could never love the world like you do Lord
Since I've had a son
'Cause you gave me a son
And now I have a son of my own
