India Arie – Good Man lyrics

I remember the first day I met you;
We were so young.
You were a blessing, there was no guessing;
You were the one.
Love was so crazy, we had a baby
And said our vows.
That's when you told me should anything happen,
I can hear you now
You told me...

"If the sun comes up and I'm not home, be strong.
If I'm not beside you, do your best to carry on
Tell the kids about me when they're old enough to understand
Tell them that their daddy was a good man. "

La la la

First anniversary, remember we
Chose a star.
But as I stand under it, I can't help but wonder if
You see it where you are.
For whatever reason, we don't see the seasons
Change again.
Go there with peace of mind, we'll meet on the other side
'cause true love don't end.
Now baby..

If the sun comes up and you're not home, I'll be strong.
If you're not beside me, i'll do my best to carry on.
I'll tell the kids about you, when they're old enough to understand.
Tell them that their daddy was a good man.

Two eyes, looking up at me,
Pointing to the picture like "where is he?"
"mama are you okay, what did the paper say
To make you cry that way? "
It said, "your daddy lived for you, your daddy died for you
And I'll do the same. "

Now baby if the sun comes up, and I'm not home be strong.
If I'm not besdie you, do your best to carry on.
Tell your kids about me when they're old enough to understand.
Tell them that your daddy was a good man...

La la la
La la la
