Lyrics

This is What He'd Say

Written By: Lindsey Ruffino

Verse 1

As I look at this old world sometimes I shudder
At the things that I see happening every day
I wish my daddy were here
I would open up my ear
If my dad were here, I bet this is what he'd say

Chorus 1

He'd say, Love the ones that always stand beside you,
Spend your time with family and don't forget to pray
Never live life with regret
And always do your best
If my dad were here, I bet this what he'd say

Verse 2

My daddy lived a simple life but happy
All the struggles that he had along the way
Were swallowed by his smile
He went the extra mile
And if he were here, I bet this is what he'd say

Chorus

He'd say live each day you wake up to its fullest
If you hurt someone say you're sorry right away
Stand up for what is right
Kiss your children every night
If my dad were here, I bet this is what he'd say

But don't forget that I am still here with you
Watching you through each and every day
Always know that I love you
I'm sorry I had to leave so soon
Just remember all the things I used to say
And they will guide you all along the way

He'd say love the ones that always stand beside you
Spend your time with family and don't forget to pray
Never live life with regret
And always do your best
If my dad were here, I bet this is what he'd say
