  • He didn't have to wake up
    He'd been up all night
    Laying there in bed listening
    To his new born baby cry
    He makes a pot of coffee
    He splashes water on his face
    His wife gives him a kiss and says
    It gonna be OK

    It wont be like this for long
    One day soon we'll look back laughin'
    At the week we brought her home
    This phase is gonna fly by
    So baby just hold on
    It wont be like this for long

    Four years later bout four thirty
    She's crawling in their bed
    And when he drops her off at preschool
    She's clinging to his leg
    The teacher peels her off of him
    He says what can I do
    She says now don't you worry
    This will only last a week or two

    It wont be like this for long
    One day soon we'll look back laughin'
    At the week we brought her home
    This phase is gonna fly by
    So baby just hold on
    It wont be like this for long

    One day soon she'll be a teenager
    And at times you'll think she hates him
    Then he'll walk her down the isle
    And he'll raise her veil
    But right now she up and crying
    And the truth is that he don't mind
    As he kisses her good night
    And she says her prayers
    He lays down there beside her
    Till her eyes are finally closed
    And just watching her it breaks his heart
    Cause he already knows
    It wont be like this for long
    One day soon that little girl is gonna be
    All grown up and gone
    Yeah this phase is gonna fly by
    He's trying to hold on
    It won't be like this for long
    It won't be like this for long Writer/s: CHARLES DUBOIS, ASHLEY GORLEY, ASHLEY RUCKER
