Most nights I try to pack Got you climbing on my back Saying, "Daddy, when am I gonna see you again?" You know I gotta go out on the road And get on with the show So most nights your mama's gonna tuck you in
When you're missing me, look at the stars up there I'll be wishing on the same ones and sing this fathers prayer
I hope you see the seven wonders I hope you sail the seven seas I hope you let the whole world in your heart But you still got room for me I hope you find a guy that treats you right On your wedding night, I'll raise a toast Hope he understands I'll always be the man that loves you the most
Summer's gone and school is back It's my turn to help you pack I'll keep your room exactly how it is I know you gotta go out on your own I'm so proud of you, you know You're the best thing that this old man ever did
When I'm missing you and all the stars come out I sing this prayer when the quiet gets too loud
I hope you see the seven wonders I hope you sail the seven seas I hope you let the whole world in your heart But you still got room for me I hope you find a guy that treats you right On your wedding night, I'll raise a toast Hope he understands I'll always be the man who loves you the most
Trust your gut, hold your own But allow for doubtin' too Forgive the wrongs and love yourself That's the hardest thing to do If your back's against the wall, baby Come on home I'm always here for you
And when you've seen the seven wonders When you've sailed the seven seas When you change the whole world with your heart I hope you think of me When I go to sing my final song Hope you celebrate and raise a toast If you cry, they'll understand For the man who loved you the most

"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
