Kent Bottenfield – A Son Of My Own lyrics

Riding through the yard upon a pony with wings
He tells the wind when to blow, the birds when to sing
And when he's tuckered out he curls up here next to me
He is the prince of the world and I'm the king


I could never love the world like you do lord
I've seen how much it cost you and I know
I could never love the world like you do lord
Since I've had a son of my own

Sunlight crosses time and space to rest in his hair
He has a smudge on his cheek, why should he care
And all the meanest dinosaurs are tied up with string
He tells them he's not afraid of anything



Yes the world is hurting, and cannot find peace
Millions of people are lost and in need
But I'd lock him away and say you let him be
Well that's just what I'd do if it were all up to me

Someday soon he'll choose the kind of life he will make
He'll have to follow his heart, and I'll need you that day
Promise me you'll teach me how I'll ever let go
Now that I have a son of my own, a son of my own

I could never love the world like you do lord
Since I've had a son, you gave me a son
Now I have a son of my own
