Wife And Kids

from the album Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates


Lyrics

Everybody thinks I’ve got it all
Nobody really does, do they
I’ve got more than I deserve, more than I ever dreamed
But there’s always a price you pay
It’s been an amazing road
I’ve been blessed I know
But at the end of the day, I go home alone

[Chorus]
I still hope someday I’ll have a wife and kids
Smiling faces running to the door when I walk in
Saying “Daddy’s home, you were gone too long.
What’d you bring me? Swing me. Let me show you what I did”
I still dream about that look on a woman’s face
That says I love you
through the good, the bad, the sunshine or the rain
Sometimes I wish I had someone to share my life with
Maybe I’ll have a wife and kids
Maybe someday

Maybe I could have a son
Play football in the backyard
Or take my daughter fishing, and when she turns fifteen
Teach her how to drive a car
When I grow old and they’ve all left home
I want to lay beside my wife and talk about the old times,
Remember all the good times

[Repeat Chorus]

Sometimes I wish I had someone to share my life with
Maybe I’ll have a wife and kids
Someday I’ll have a wife and kids
Maybe someday
