By: Ben Fuller

He never hit me with his fists 
But he did some damage with his words 
my old man didn’t know no better 
Just passed down what he thought worked 
I tried and tried to break his pride
And be the apple of his eye 
And maybe I was loved
but he never let me know I was 

Making my father proud
Looks a whole lot different now 
Ain’t about, the man, that I call dad
Who I could never figure out 
It’s about knowin’ who’s son I really am 
And knowin’ he’s my biggest fan 
It’s a kind a love that makes my world revolve around 
Making my father proud 

(That’s what life’s about) 

Gotta a Long road of live and learns 
in the rear view of my life 
But Somewhere in the crash and burns 
And those wrong turns I saw the light 
He kissed my face, I felt his Grace 
He said my child you found your place 
I fell down on my knees
I looked up and I could see 

Me and my old man, finally settled old scores 
Cause pleasin this world just don’t matter no more 
Now all I’m livin for
