Lyrics

Dear Theodosia, what to say to you?
You have my eyes. You have your mother's name.
When you came into the world, you cried and
it broke my heart.
I'm dedicating every day to you.
Domestic life was never quite my style.
When you smile, you knock me out, I fall apart.
And I thought I was so smart.
You will come of age with our young nation.
We'll bleed and fight for you,
we'll make it right for you.
If we lay a strong enough foundation
we'll pass it on to you, we'll give the world to
you, and you'll blow us all away.
someday, someday.
Yeah, you'll blow us all away,
someday, someday.
Oh Philip, when you smile I am undone.
My son.
Look at my son. Pride is not the word I'm
looking for.
There is so much more inside me now.
Oh Philip, you outshine the morning sun.
My son.
When you smile, I fall apart.
And I thought I was so smart.
My father wasn't around.
My father wasn't around.
I swear that
I'll be around for you.
I'll do whatever it takes.
I'll make a million mistakes.
I'll make the world safe and sound for you
will come of age with our young nation.
We'll bleed and fight for you,
we'll make it right for you.
If we lay a strong enough foundation
we'll pass it on to you, we'll give the world to
you, and you'll blow us all away.
someday, someday.
Yeah, you'll blow us all away,
someday, someday.
