I used to think he had no time for me

I used to think he didn't care at all

That if I ever fell and hurt my knee

I'd get more comfort from my bedroom wall

He worked all the time and I didn't know

That he did it so I could live the life

That he couldn't; he only did it so

That I could live without un-needed strife

Now at last I realize all that he's done

And how much I have all because of him

And though being alone still isn't fun

The idea now no longer feels so grim

Because I know he'll be there if I call

I know he'll never, ever let me fall
