I Wanna Be There - lyrics

The first night we brought you home
You scared me half to death
I stood right beside your crib
And counted every breath
Looking at your little face
Heaven seems so close
It felt alright to ask the Lord
For what I want the most

I wanna be there
When you’re one
And you’re just learning how to walk
I wanna be there
When you’re two
And hear the funny way you talk
I wanna be there
When you’re three
And my wall’s covered up with chalk
My only prayer
I wanna be there

Well I’d like to save some money
So we can build a bigger house
Work harder at my job
And make my family proud
A million things I’ve got in mind
That I wanna do
God’s will, and I’ve got time
That’s what I’ll give to you

I wanna be there
When you’re one
And you’re just learning how to walk
I wanna be there
When you’re two
And hear the funny way you talk
I wanna be there
When you’re three
And my wall’s covered up with chalk
My only prayer
I wanna be there

I wanna be there
When my little girl is walking down the aisle
I wanna be there
Fighting back the tears and trying hard to smile
I wanna be there
With your momma when you’re having your first child
My only prayer
I wanna be there
