Time flies - where is that child of mine?
Who let the years pass by in the click of a finger?
Leaving home - just as your wings have grown
Another bird has flown and it's true..
It's hard to say goodbye!
Beware the clouds and stormy skies
Rain on your face, sun in your eyes
Don't fly so high, you can't see where to land
Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm

Through the years as we watched you grow
So scared of letting go of the joys and sleepless nights!
All the things you would say or do
Made me so proud of you
And you're more than a miracle to me
For silence chills an aching heart
Absence tears the soul apart
But don't look back at what you've left behind
Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm

Try to do what you can
With everything that you have
All the power is in your hands
Don't give up - keep going
Whatever life keeps throwing
Find the courage to endure
Then you'll be more
Than just a face in the crowd


Do your best but beware...
No one said that life was fair
Even best friends let you down
Rise above the madness
In this crazy world we live
Take your chances, knock on doors
Because you're more
Than just a face, in the crowd

You're more than just a face in the crowd (Rep)

I love this genre and you did it justice...... for sure

Not sure it's a "pop song" , but a most enjoyable listen .
