Watching You Go

Written By: Stacy Labriola

Watching you go
(lyrics Stacy Labriola
music Stacy Labriola, Art Labriola ©2000)

I met you on a friday in the spring of ‘95
It’s true what they say about all this
Indeed you changed my life
How could so much sacrifice bring one so much joy
But from that first hello I’ve been practicing my goodbyes

I watch you crawl I watch you sleep
I watch you fall I watch you need me
It’s so bittersweet watching you go

As we mark each milestone I have to wipe my eyes
Keep a steady tone
The hardest job I’ll ever do is taking care of you
As you trade your innocence for all that hope of independence
Keep your eyes on that prize my spirit is by your side

I watch you crawl I watch you sleep
I watch you fall I watch you need me
I want the world for you this I know
You take my hand you learn to speak
I watch you smile I watch you leave me
It's so bittersweet watching you go

As you move on your destination
My heart may mourn the separation
But take a part of me in your soul
Know I’ll be watching and I loving you so

On that day I met you I knew you were born to fly
But I’ll hold tight ‘til you take flight
I’ll keep leading you home
So forgive me if I stare to long
Fuss about you , try to right your wrongs
If I have some trouble letting go
It’s only that I love you
