  • I lost my breath when I
    Saw you take your first
    My whole world stopped like that
    And I ain't the crying type
    I just saw your eyes
    Words just can't describe what I see
    You look just like me, yeah

    You're gonna think I hung the moon
    You're gonna think I made the sky
    That the sun rises
    And sets inside of my eyes
    And it won't be long
    'Til I hear "Daddy's home" and
    Footsteps running to
    The man that hung the moon

    And I already know
    You'll probably be a Mama's boy
    It worked out fine for your Dad
    I hope I'm still your hero
    'Cause I already love you more than
    Even I understand

    You're gonna think I hung the moon
    And that I made the sky
    That the sun rises
    And sets inside of my eyes
    And it won't be long
    'Til I hear "Daddy's home" and
    Footsteps running to
    The man that hung the moon
    Oh yeah

    And one day you'll realize
    I've lost my cape, I can't fly
    And I'm only human
    And you'll need more than me
    But you'll know to hit your knees
    If I've done my job right
    You'll know where to find

    The Man who really hung the moon
    Who really made the sky
    Yeah the sun rises
    And sets inside of His eyes
    And it won't be long
    Until He calls us home
    And we'll all be running to
    The Man that hung the moon
    Oh yeah

    No matter what
    No matter where I am
    Just know I love you
    With all I am
    Me and your Mama both Writer/s: Brantley Keith Gilbert
