Lyrics

My Daughter and My Son

Written By: Don Forbes

My Daughter and My Son

Action news reporting from a high school parking lot
Sources unconfirmed say "two kids killed and several shot"
Suspects been arrested but the damage has been done
And I think about my daughter and my son

Other side of town heads hanging down trying to fight the tears
Drive by shooter takes a life of only twenty years
And when I see their agony, and what some bullet's done
I can't help but think my daughter and my son

Another dream shatters
Every time this scene repeats
And all those hopes just blown away
Like dust down an empty street
And everybody talks and wonders
"What have we become?"
But I just think about my daughter and my son

Too many times some one who feels abandoned or abused
Reaches out and pulls a trigger then they make the news
and if you still call this freedom, and the rights of everyone
Explain this to my daughter and my son

Every time a dream shatters
Every time this scene repeats
Go ahead…. explain away
They're dying in the streets
And if the politicians crumble
I'd toss them out, one by one
I owe it to.. my daughter and my son

I Just Got Here First

Written By: Don Forbes, Judith Kate Friedman, Joe Marquez

I Just Got Here First

I wish I could touch your shoulder
But I’ll just whisper in your ear
Daddy you’ll awake to news you didn’t
Ever want to hear
When duty called we all came running
They sent us up against the worst
That was my last thought before I realized
That I just got here first

Tell my little brother
To take that new guitar
And when he turns 16 in June slip him
The keys to my old car
I know he believes in heaven
And if our roles had been reversed
He would do the same for me
I just got here first

Have faith…….. Believe
Someday you’ll be here with me
Just be still And know……………..
I will always love you I’m never letting go
I know some things are hard to understand
But everything is part of a plan
I just got here first

If you step out in the yard tonight
You might see my new star
Look up and know I’m looking down
I’ll never be that far
Cause I know love’s the everlasting hope
In this whole universe
And someday we’ll meet again
I just got here first
(Chorus)
(chorus)
