He Didn't Have to Be

歌詞

When a single mom goes out

On a date with somebody new

It always winds up feeling more

Like a job interview

 

My momma used to wonder

If she'd ever meet someone

Who wouldn't find out about me

And then turn around and run

 

I met the man I call my dad

When I was five years old

He took my mom out to a movie

And for once I got to go

A few months later I remember lying there in bed

I overheard him pop the question

And prayed that she'd say yes

And then all of a sudden

Oh it seemed so strange to me

How we went from something's missing

To a family

 

Lookin' back all I can say

About all the things he did for me

 

Is I hope I'm at least half the dad

That he didn't have to be

 

I met the girl that's now

My wife about three years ago

 

We had the perfect marriage

But we wanted somethin' more

Now here

I stand surrounded by our family and friends

Crowded 'round the nursery window

As they bring the baby in

And now all of a sudden

It seemed so strange to me

How we've gone from something's missing

To a family

 

Lookin' through the glass I think about the man

That's standin' next to me

 

And I hope I'm at least half the dad

That he didn't have to be

 

Lookin' back all I can say

About all the things he did for me

 

Is I hope I'm at least half the dad

That he didn't have to be

 

Yeah I hope I'm at least half the dad

That he didn't have to be

 

Because he didn't have to be

 

You know he didn't have to be
