  • 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 Writer/s: Benjamin James Simonetti, James Adam Nergenah, Zachry Alexander Brown
