6lbs and 9oz. lookin' up at me
Like I have all the answers
I hope I have the ones you need
I've never really done this, now I know what scared is

Sometimes I'll protect you from everything that's wrong
Other times I'll let you just find out on your own
But that's when you'll be growin',
And the whole time I'll be knowin

CHORUS:
You're gonna fly with every dream you chase
You're gonna cry, but know that that's okay
Sometimes life's not fair, but if you hang in there
You're gonna see that sometimes bad is good
We just have to believe things work out like they should
Life has no guarantees, but always loved by me
You're gonna be

I'm afraid you'll have to suffer through
Some of my mistakes
Lord knows I'll be trying to give you what it takes
What it takes to know the difference
Between getting by and livin'

‘Cause anything worth doing is worth doing all the way
Just know you'll have to live with all
The choices that you make
So make sure you're always givin' way
More than you're takin'

REPEAT CHORUS

Someone's everything
You're gonna see
Just what you are to me

You're gonna fly with every dream you chase
We just have to believe things work out like they should
Life has no guarantees, but always loved by me
You're gonna be
Always loved by me

    She is talking to her newborn that is now in her arms. She's going to make mistakes, she's gonna teach him/her about things & other times let them find on their own, and protect them as best as she can. S/he is going to have dreams and sometimes fall, but it's going to be ok.

    I believe, by the music video, it's about a mother telling her daughter, that no matter what happens, she can tell her mother anything. (like that she's pregnant). And that the daughter always has her mother for everything, and that the mother will love her no matter what.
