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.
And if we lay a strong enough foundation,
we'll pass it on you you,
we'll give the world to you and you'll blow us all away.
Some day, some day, yeah you'll blow us all away,
some day, some day.
Ooh, 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, ooh 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.
Come of age with our young nation, we'll bleed and fight for you, we'll make it right for you, and 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.
Some day, some day. Yeah you'll blow us all away. Some day, some day.
