Song Title: Letter to My Kids
Ya, I gotta get real personal on this ya know, for me
[Incomprehensible] screamin' out two things

When I was young my ambition in life
Was to finish way ahead of the game
Such a shame ya'll payin' the price
In this race of fortune and fame

I really feel apologetic inside
Though you'd never think to give me the blame
It's when I look into your lives
I wonder if it was really worth all the pain

Now I know what it take in the heights of mistakes
Is it there in the mind of a child?
Though it's all for our sakes, still my heart, how it breaks
Every time that I see your smile, check it

Conversation on the phone is fine
But for me it could never replace
Being there to spend quality time
Tuck you in to see the smile on your face

So when you're old enough to read these lines
I hope you never find yourself in my place
I hope you never feel as lonely as I
And miss the warmth of your child's embrace

Now I know what it take in the heights of mistakes
Is it there in the mind of a child? No, no, no, no
Though it's all for our sakes, still my heart, how it breaks
Every time that I see your smile

Now I know what it takes, in the heights of mistakes
Is it there in the mind of a child? No, no, no, no
Though it's all for our sakes, still my heart, how it breaks
Every time that I see your smile

Now I know what it takes, in the heights of mistakes
Is it there in the mind of a child?
Though it's all for our sakes, still my heart, how it breaks
Every time that I see your smile
