lyrics

we made cherry pies
and sat them on the window sill
go outside to run and hide,
till' Mom called us home for the evening meal
we'd sit under daddy oak
and share our dreams and things
over the years I realized
you had less and less to share with me
you said one night:

when I grow up
I want to be a better man.
throw my son a ball,
and hold his mother's hand
find a way to
make the days resolve
on a better note
I want to make my love soar
'cause all it does now is float

in the spring i'd go out,
and sit under the April Rain
grab a journal & pen
and let the evening pick my brain.
I always thought of you
the way you see the world intrigues me so
I'll watch where you walk
and decide i'll follow

when I grow up
I want to be a better man.
Throw my son a ball,
and hold his mother's hand
find a way to
make the days resolve
on a better note
I want to make my love soar
'cause all it does now is float

now we're grown up
and we've started families
I want to tell you all
the things i'm noticing
the way my daughter plays
the way I can say anything
to make her smile
im a lucky man
i can do the same with my bride
and the memories come flooding in
when she makes her cherry pies
