you’ll be a bright light coming out of the dark
all the doctors blinking hard
you’ll be lightning coming out of a storm
it’s a message! it’s a miracle!

you will do alright
you got your mother’s eyes
you got your daddy’s head, everything you need

for this hard ride they’ll be strapping you on
oh the ups and downs and you can’t get off!
yeah, it’s trouble we’re handing off
and you gotta do better than us

but it’ll be alright
you got lots of time
you got your daddy’s love, everything you want

i can feel you, and what you’re going to be
you’ll be stronger, you’ll be smarter than me!
oh baby! i’ll say it again
you’re the most incredible thing!

sorry this is it
it’s cold and hard and badly lit
and there’s no backing out of it

so forget where you’ve been
it’ll never be that good again
and we must only look ahead

soon you’re thirty three
and everything you tried to be
was pulled apart by fear and greed

but young hands can build you up
and carve your face in honest rock
sunlight on your noble jaw

young hands build you up….
so i’m happy that you’ve come along
i’m happy that you’ve come
