“what I did right sons of the desert
(drew womack/sonny lemaire)

-i have my heroes, but no one knows their names
They never asked for recognition, they never wanted fame
My granddad fought the second world war when he was just eighteen
He spent four months as a prisoner
To give me the american dream
In my eyes he's everything, all I hope to be
And I won't forget that day he said he was proud of me

So I'll take that one day and figure out what I did right
I'll do it the same way for the rest of my life
What I did right

I have my good friends, they have a place inside my heart
But my best friend, well she holds the biggest part
She finds the good in me
She knows just what it takes
And she loves the man in me
Through all my mistakes
In my eyes she's everything, everything to me
And I won't forget the day she said, "you're all I need"

So I'll take that one day and figure out what I did right
I'll do it the same way for the rest of my life
What I did right

And I hold my newborn baby
To give her comfort while she cries
In this moment I feel helpless
'til she looks into my eyes, her tears subside

So I'll take that one day and figure out what I did right
I'll do it the same way for the rest of my life
What I did right
