Lyrics

My Child?s Smile

Working late into the night to make ends meet
Wishing that I was at home, not all alone
I can?t help but wonder if I?ve failed to provide
Can I take anymore hits to my damaged pride?

So many roads I could have chosen to take
Fearing all of the mistakes, is it too late?
I can?t help but wonder if I?ve done all I could
Wanting to be the father that I know I should

Chorus
When I struggle to find my way
When I?m close to givin? in
I somehow find my strength again
In my child?s smile
I?m the father she needs me to be
And when she?s huggin? me
I?m holding on to heaven
Thank God for my child?s smile
Hmmm love?s right in a child?s smile

Life has to move on when I want it to stop
My little girl is all grown, out on her own
I can?t help but wonder if I?ve made her proud
Given her the strength to rise above the crowd?

Chorus
When I struggle to find my way
When I?m close to givin? in
I somehow find my strength again
In my child?s smile
I?m the father she needs me to be
And when she?s huggin? me
I?m holding on to heaven
Thank God for my child?s smile
Hmmm love?s right in a child?s smile

Bridge
In my child?s smile I finally see
This is the life that is meant to be
Holding her makes everything right
Every tough moment worth the fight

In my child?s smile
I?m the father she needed me to be
And when she?s huggin? me
I?m holding on to heaven, I?m holding tight
I thank God for my child?s smile
Hmmm love?s right in a child?s smile
Hmmm Hmmm Hmmm my child?s smile
