The things my father said would make me a better man
Hard work and the love of friends, a woman that understands
I hope my father knows the seeds we've sown still grow
At night I go to sleep and pray he is watching over me

Somewhere there's a star that's shining
So bright that I can see you smile
And all that I need is one last chance
Just to hear you say goodbye

Sometimes I remember when you taught me to tie my shoes
One thing I will never forget is the day that I lost you
I hope you always know the car that we built will always roll

Somewhere there's a star that's shining
So bright that I can see you smile
And all that I need is one last chance
Just to hear you say goodbye

And if you have a dream you better hang on for dear life
And when that cold wind blows just let it pass you by
Yeah, things my father said
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Somewhere there's a star that's shining
So bright that I can see you smile
And all that I need is one last chance
Just to hear you, you say goodbye, goodbye
Just to hear you say goodbye
