Song for Eva Mae

Song for Eva Mae - 3:45
Eva Mae, I remember the day you were born; it was the summer.
Your mum and dad called me up to say how proud they were,
Voices ringing with the love of a new born child,
Lights shining in their eyes, expectant smiles.

Eva Mae, well your father and I have been friends for many years.
We've watched the world around us change, hoped our hopes, feared our fears.
He asked me to watch you as you grow,
To hold your hand through the highs and lift you up from the lows.

Now Eva Mae, don't you judge me too hard,
I tried to be a good man, to do the best with what I've got.
Eva Mae, I will teach you what I know,
And watch over you everywhere that you go.

Eva Mae, I have made many mistakes in my time,
Burned my share of bridges and broken hearts, I've told lies.
I have not always followed my own advice.
I've fallen flat, but Eva darling sometimes that's just life.

Eva Mae, with the way that I am I might not much be around,
But I'll stop in from time to time to share the things I've learned:
That you should keep your friends and family close,
And you should always, always, always, always try to say "yes".
That we can none of us ever be perfect,
But Eva darling we can try our best.

Now Eva Mae, I won't ever judge you hard,
Just try to be a good girl and do the best with what you've got.
And Eva Mae, I will teach you what I know,
And watch over you everywhere you go.
