Only Son
Lyrics and Music by Rob Oswin

Where did I go Wrong? I thought I taught you good.
Cuz' your my only son, And I gave you everything I could.

You took my helpin' hand, To learn walk and to run.
But now my boy your a man, And your still my only son!

And its tearing my heart in two, when I see what has become of you.
And how you're throwing it all away, for a piece of the sky....
Maybe that’s why, we don't see eye to eye…

You took my love for the land, But you ignored my sense of direction.
While the boy inside the man, Was only looking for my affection.

All the people I've known, And all the things I've done.
All the seeds I have sewn, And your still my only son...

And its tearing my heart in two, When I see what has become of you.
And how you're throwing it all away, For a piece of the sky....
Maybe that’s why, we don't see eye to eye
But we try!
Cuz' your my only son
Cuz' your the only one!
Cuz' your my only son!
Hey! Hey! Hey!

There will come a day, when I'll be dead and gone.
And I hope you'll keep the faith, and the strength to carry on.
For you I hope and pray, Cuz' your still my only son!

And its tearing my heart in two, when I see what has become of you.
And how you're throwing it all away, for a piece of the sky....
Lord, I don't know why!
Its tearing my heart in two, When I see what has become of you.
And how you're throwing it all away, for a piece of the sky...
Maybe that’s why, we don't see eye to eye
But we try!
Cuz' your my only son
Cuz' your the only one!
Cuz' your my only son!
Cuz' your my only,
Cuz' your my only,
Cuz' your my only son.
