"It Won't Be Like This For Long" ~ Darius Rucker

This song was brought to my attention by a friend on Facebook today.

I was so touched-and impressed - I wanted to share it here!

Any parent - or grandparent - can relate to these lyrics.


**Here is some info on this singer!**



Thanks for this Youtube ~


Darius Rucker's new song

It Won't Be Like This For Long

LYRICS:

He didnt have to wake up
He'd been up all nite
Lay'n there in bed listen'n
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It gonna be OK

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll look back laugh'n
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
It wont be like this for long

Four years later bout four thirty
She's crawling in their bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says what can I do
She says now don't you worry
This will only last a week or two

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll drop her off
And she wont even know your gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It wont be like this for long

One day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times you'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the isle
And he'll raise her vale
But right now she's up and cry'n
And the truth is that he don't mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers
He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watch'n her it breaks his heart
Cause he already knows

It wont be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah this phase is gonna fly by
He's try'n to hold on
It wont be like this for long
It wont be like this for long

Hi Dianne,

Yes! He does have a wonderful voice. He's a new discovery for me! (I know-I know- he has been around for a long time...but I'm always behind the times! :) )

anyway-I really love this song!
