Father & Friend


Father & Friend (2008) by Alain Clark

Oh papa sit down, and hear my song
Oh, and if you feel like it then please sing along
No nothing that I wanna say
I haven’t said before
But to use your words
You can never be too sure

See, even though I don’t always show
I’m glad that you’re around
I Said I’m glad that you're around

Oh son it's so strange, to hear and see
That someone so different is and so like me
You may have gone right, where I would have gone left
But son, that’s alright
I will always have your back
See even though I don’t always show
I’m proud that you're my son

Old days, and all of the new. Wanting to be like you
Every time I look at you I see myself
I’m so proud of you
For you have made me what I am - a better man
I’m just so proud of you

O dad, your views in life
Tell me how they came to be
Well see, I didn’t know my father
Like the way that you know me
Son, life is just too short
For us to never be in touch
So that’s why I wanna tell you
That I love you very much
Oh even though I don’t always show, you know

And I want you to know that
Every time I look at you I see myself
And I’m so proud of you
You have made me what I am - a better man
I’m so proud of you

I’m here, and I’ll be if I can
A father and a friend

Oooh, every time I look at you

Every time I look at you
(What you see) I see myself. And I’m so proud of you
You have made me what I am. A son and a friend

I’m just so proud of you

You know that one day too, I'll be walking in your shoes

And I know that you'll do fine, 'cause you're a son of mine

Oh dear papa tell me what you've learned
So that I don't get my fingers burned

Son, you'll see that as you go
You'll make mistakes of your own

But that's oke man, see you live and you learn
you live and you learn
