There will be tears, I've no doubt
There may be smiles but a few
And when those tears have run out
You will be numb and blue

I can't be there with you, but I can dream
I still dream dream dream, I still dream

My grandaddy was a player, pretty boy in a pair of gators

The only dad I'd ever know, but pretty soon he'd be gone too
Hide my face, hide my face, can't let 'em see me crying

And they weren't crying, my friend said it wasn't so bad
You can't miss what you ain't had, well I can, I'm sad and


I can't be there, that's all you had to say to me was
You couldn't be there, why couldn't you say to me
You won't be there, you coulda warned me
You wouldn't be here right here, you wouldn't be here for me, no
