  • I know you wish
    You had a brother who had blue eyes just like you
    I know you wish
    You had a sister you could tell your secrets to
    Maybe we'll miss
    Having four sets of china on the table
    But I guarantee you this
    You mean more to me than branches to a maple

    Pink painted walls
    Your face in my locket
    Your daddy and me
    Your tiny back pocket
    Mama's first love
    Last of my kind
    You'll always be my only child

    Well I can't let go
    Of watercolor memories that you made me
    And I'm holding on
    To the innocence of tea parties and daydreams

    Pink painted walls
    Your face in my locket
    Your daddy and me
    Your tiny back pocket
    Mama's first love
    Last of my kind
    You'll always be my only child

    Someday your wish
    Will come true when your first baby's born
    And you'll cherish every kiss
    And wonder how you could love something more

    Pink painted walls
    Your face in my locket
    Your daddy and me
    Your tiny back pocket
    Mama's first love
    The last of my kind
    You'll always be my only child (child)
    My only child (my only child)
    My only child (child)
    My only child (my only child)

    I know you wish
    You had a brother who had blue eyes just like you Writer/s: Amanda Shires, Miranda Lambert, Natalie Hemby
