Tell me how the circle ends
There's no beginning
Everything that came before
Will come round again
And I look in the mirror
My father's eyes look back at me
He gave me a road to choose
He gave me freedom
And I pray I'm strong enough
To walk in his shoes
And I, I hope that I become
Half the man he wants me to be

Cause I feel you guiding me
Showing me the way when I'm misdirected
I know your not here
But I feel connected

Cause everything that I am
Comes from a better man
And all that I've said I've done
Can't rewrite my history
Right there for all to see
I'm just my father's son
Taught me to walk, now I run
Now I run

Sometimes when I lose myself
In my weakness
I can feel the touch of his unmistakable hands
And their pushing me forward
Back into the circle again
And I hope my son sees in me
The kind of man that he was to me

And everything that I am
Comes from a better man
And all that I've said I've done
Can't rewrite my history
Right there for all to see
I'm just my father's son
Taught me to walk, now I run
I run

He's the best and the worst of me
Sometimes I don't know where my common sense is
I may be a sinner
But my best defense is

Everything that I am
Comes from a better man
And all that I've said I've done
Can't rewrite my history
Right here for all to see
I'm just my father's son
Yeah oh
I'm just my father's son
Taught me to walk
Now I run
