  • Once upon a time, you were twenty-five
    Walking up the aisle, you made the promise of your life
    Blinked twice and you were twenty-nine
    Singing lullabies, and I looked up at you for the first time

    Words fall short but I am sure
    There'll never be anyone like you

    You're, you're strong like your father even when you are scared
    When I was in trouble, you never left me there
    And you love like your mother, like there's nothing to lose
    You're an unsung hero, so I'll sing this song for you

    Woke up, I was twenty-one, and I fell in love
    Remember how I told you that I'd
    Searched the world and I found the girl
    And oh, how she reminds me of you

    You're strong like your father even when you are scared
    When I was in trouble, you never left me there
    And you love like your mother, like there's nothing to lose
    You're an unsung hero, so I'll sing this song for you

    For all the times I fell down, you showed me how to stand
    And when we crossed the ocean, you were my safe place to land
    Been on a thousand stages, but when it's all said and done
    I hope I make you proud of, of the man that I've become

    To be strong like my father even when I am scared
    And when someone's in trouble, I'll never leave them there
    And I'll love like my mother, like there's nothing to lose
    You're my unsung hero, and I sing this song for you Writer/s: Joel David Smallbone, Luis Federico Vindver Arosa, Luke James Smallbone, Seth David Mosley
