Finally I've met you The day has come You're more than beautiful And you're my son
I don't deserve this I never thought it could be Quite like the moment When you first smiled at me A toothless, wonderful feeling Like I'd never seen
It's you, Noah, it's you
And when you lie down to sleep I'll protect you From the demons of the night While I'm watching you grow
I'll pray There's so much I could teach you If you only have the time Pray There's so much God can teach you If you only have the time
So will you tell me the little things? What does God look like? And angels' wings? I don't remember these things So would you teach them to me? So for the moment I'll watch you breathe
And when you wake up in the morning And I pour the coffee You're always smiling, sweetly

Satan'slittlehelper from Westbury, NyI love this song. I actually sing it to my children every night when I put them to bed. I just subtitute "noah"(weiland's son) with my children's names. Sometimes they request an encore. Truly a beautiful song.
Matthew Doroshow from Philadelphia, PaThis is my favorite STP song.
Mike from Mckinney, TxScott actually wrote this song in a crack-house while he wanted someone to sing him to sleep, he decided to do it himself and wrote this song real quick. Wait, no. I just made that up.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
