The things my father said
Would make me a better man,
Hard work and the love of friends
A woman that understands.
I hope my father knows the seeds we've sewn still grow,
At night I go to sleep and pray he's watching over me
Somewhere there's a star that's shining,
So bright that I can see you smile,
And all that I need is one last chance,
Just to hear you say, goodbye
Sometimes I remember when
You taught me to tie my shoes,
One thing I will never forget
Is the day that I lost you.
I hope you always know the car that we built will always roll
And if you have a dream
You'd better hang on for dear life,
And when that cold wind blows
Just let it pass you by.
Yeah, things my father said
Yea! Yeah, yeah, yeah
Just to hear you say,
