What It Means To Be Loved

Album: Come Alive (2009)
  • For five months and eight days my wife and I had waited
    Gettin' ready for our baby girl
    But when he called the doctor said I need to see you
    And could you come in soon
    Then something died inside of me to sit with him and hear
    The tests that said our baby may not live to be a year
    Then turnin' to my wife and he said "whata you wanna do?"
    And she said...

    I wanna give her the world
    I wanna hold her hand
    I wanna be her mom for as long as I can
    And I wanna live every moment until that day comes
    I wanna show her what it means to be loved

    So we spent each day, watchin' every minute
    And prayin' for our baby girl
    And I will not forget the way I felt that moment
    When she came into this world
    But they took her from the room just as soon as she was born
    And watchin' through a window I could see her holdin' on
    When a voice inside me said...

    I wanna give her the world
    I wanna be her dad
    I wanna hold her close for as long as I can
    And I wanna live every moment until that day comes
    I wanna show her what it means to be loved

    I said everyday
    We've got to bring her home
    She's been out to prove the doctors wrong
    Oh and you should see her now
    She's as pretty as her mom
    And theres a boy at the front door waiting just to take her to her high school prom...

    And he wants to give her the world
    Wants to hold her hand
    And someday she may get a wedding band
    But she's gunna live every moment until that day comes
    And we're gunna show her what it means to be loved

    Oh yeah (what it means to be loved)

    Show her what it means to be loved
