17) The Man I Wanna Be
Everybody tells me I look just like him
I spent all my life looking up to him
Playing basketball, golf, and livin right
Wanting him to know how hard I tried

There’s an unspoken love between us
That time and miles can’t come between
Worked on cars, talked bout life and built trust
Never had a doubt in I’m mind,
He’s the man I wanna be


I know he aint had the straightest past
He’s not the first, sure won’t be the last
But the Lord forgives all, no exceptions
I know he’s better now and I accept him

There’s an unspoken love between us
That time and miles can’t come between
Worked on cars, talked bout life and built trust
Never had a doubt in I’m mind,
He’s the man I wanna be

He’s the one who’s always gonna be there
Through the sun and rain, good and bad
He calms my mind and eases my greatest fears
He’s the man I wanna be, my Dad

Hey dude, this is the Contest forum. This needs to be posted in the main Songwriting and Lyrics forum. It also seems like you need to read the rules, specifically regarding thread titles. I'm going to close this and then once you've read the rules feel free to repost this in the main S+L forum.

Thanks.
