VERSE 1.
He was a bright little bundle
A planet all his own
I named him after my Dad
From his very first smile
He opened my heart to new feelings
He had all of his fingers
And all of his toes
They were the answer to my prayers
And I bless the day
I began the journey
With my new son

CHORUS
From the bottom of my heart
I will love and inspire
And show him the sweetness of sharing
Your passions and desires
With my new son

VERSE 2.
Then came a second son
And I thanked the Lord
He's been so good to me
And I'll return the favor
By caring for this smiling little baby
And when I wonder how I'll love my children equally
I see an answer in their individuality
And I bless the day
I became companions
With my new sons

REPEAT CHORUS
From the bottom of my heart
I will love and inspire
And show them the sweetness of sharing
Your passions and desires
With my new son

Musical BRIDGE

REPEAT CHORUS

I love the story of this song - takes you on a ride. Beautiful tribute to your sons. I really like your instrumental break in the middle of the song- fantastic work!

really nice vibe, honest lyrics and sweet sounding guitars.

The vocals are really good. The lyrics are really intense have very much emotion. The instrumentation is very good. I really enjoyed listening to this song.

Good story telling style with a smooth and confident performance. Interesting voice, country crossover feel with an honest and 'real' quality. well played mid instrumental section, in fact well played all through. I liked the move to a minor chord on the bridge, worked extremely well. Thanks for this, I enjoyed it. good luck with the song and your 'New Son'

Enjoyed your song and the topic of parenthood in a Christian world view.

A very sweet devotional to your sons, well done. If I were your sons I would be very proud of this song, well done!

A nice track. Great lyrics & esp. loved the guitar solo.

Great Music

Sweet song.

Clear lyrics on the rather neglected subject of father-son love.

Nice family man ode. Like the slide in the hook. You know you're going to have to write "My new daughter" if you have a girl. :)

Sweet song almost poignant. Very good vocal performance. Nice guitar fills and the turn around at the end of the choruses is very nice. I like the vocal arrangement. The mix on the guitars is very good, placement, volume and tone were all very good. Nice feel on the rhythm section too, minimal and something a little different. Me likey.

This was a sweet story of a man who is greatful for the life he has and can put it to song. When a child has the love of a father he usually becomes the man that father hopes he will be.
