  • Oh, I watched you grow up
    Only to despise
    I seen the madness stack up
    Through tarpaulin eyes

    I have heard you come up
    Believing your own lies
    Witnessed the blessing rise up
    In a very strange disguise

    And though you have become a burden
    One thing remains, that's for certain
    I will love you all my life
    But without you in my life

    Yes I watched you climb up
    I seen you come alive
    From those very humble beginnings
    In NW5

    And though we face the final curtain
    One thing remains, that's for certain
    I will love you all my life
    But without you in my life

    I would give you everything
    For just that smile you bring
    For just that song to sing
    I would give you everything
    For just that smile you bring
    For just that song to sing, I sing now

    Oh I watched you grow up
    Only to despise
    Witnessed the blessing rise up
    In a very strange disguise

    Nothing, it seems, lasts forever
    People change just like the weather
    Some for good and sometimes never
    I hope things work out for the better

    'Cause I would give you everything
    For just that smile you bring
    For just that song to sing

    I would give you everything
    For just that smile you bring
    For just that song to sing

    I would give you everything
    For just that smile you bring
    For just that song to sing
    I would give you everything
    For just that smile you bring
    For just that song to sing

    I would give you everything
    For just the smile you bring
    Just to hear that song to sing Writer/s: MICHAEL BARSON, LEE JAY THOMPSON
