JUST LIKE YOU
Alec Benjamin


When I was younger, I would argue with my dad
Tell him that I hated him when I was talking back
Blocked his number, can't believe that I did that
Oh, I didn't have a reason, wish that I could take it back
But as the years went by, he was always by my side
To wipe all of the tears I cried

Now that I'm older, realize my father
Was doing the best he could do
Told him, "One day, I'll have a son or a daughter
And when I'm a father too
I hope that I am just like you"

I hope that I am just like you
I hope that I am just like you
I hope that I am just like you

Now I realize that he had struggles of his own
How could I be so selfish, oh, how could I block his phone?
I remember when my father lost his job
He held our home together for the family, he was strong
And as the years went by, he was always by my side
To wipe all of the tears I cried

Now that I'm older, realize my father
Was doing the best he could do
Told him, "One day, I'll have a son or a daughter
And when I'm a father too
I hope that I am just like you"

I hope that I am just like you
I hope that I am just like you
I hope that I am just like you

(I hope that I am just like you)
I hope that I am just like you
(I hope that I am just like you)
I hope that I am just like
(I hope that I am just like you)
I hope that I am just like
(I hope that I am just like)

Now that I'm older, realize my father
Was doing the best he could do
Told him, "One day, I'll have a son or a daughter
And when I'm a father too
I hope that I am just like you"

I hope that I am just like you
I hope that I am just like you
I hope that I am just like you
