life without you
lyrics|songsheet|recording|stereofield

mother
young mother cradles in her arms her newly born son.
she holds him to her breast and whispers to him:
"i can't believe the beautiful things i've seen or where i've been.
i can't imagine life without you."

father
a good man pulls his son along and he grows strong.
son sees his father turning gray and listens to him:
"i can't believe the beautiful things i've seen or where i've been.
i can't imagine life without you."

family
with family he bears the burdens of stewards of life.
but tiny hugs & kisses bring words to his mind:
"I can't believe the beautiful things i've seen or where I've means.
I can't imagine life without you."
