One Of Us

Album: Stories To Tell (2012)
  • Your mom and I, we're counting down
    The days until that joyful sound,
    When you turn the two of us to three.
    It was time I guess, and heaven knew
    And decided then to give us you.
    God must know some things that we can't see.

    And all we are, we are
    Who we'll be, we'll be
    Love and hurt, doubt and trust
    Welcome to being one of us.

    Your mother, well, she's strong and steady
    Southern drawl and good lord, she's pretty
    She's better than anything I dreamed
    And honestly, I'm scared to death
    I'll breathe at last at your first breath.
    Everything you need, I'll try to be.

    And all we are, we are
    And who we'll be, we'll be
    Love and hurt, doubt and trust
    Welcome to being one of us.

    As for you, we're soon to see
    A room of blue or maybe pink
    Mama's black or daddy's dirty blonde
    Whoever you turn out to be
    You're forever part of me
    You turned me to a father from a son

    All we are, you are
    And who we'll be, you'll be
    Love and hurt, doubt and trust
    Welcome to being one of us Writer/s: BEN KOHN, GAVIN JONES, JEREMY THOMPSON, KWASI DANQUAH, PETER KELLEHER, TOM BARNES
