Welcome back to life my friend It's good to see you there again Bruised and weathered by the storm Newer than when you were born Don't let go of love Don't let go of love When life takes you apart Learn to love with a broken heart Learn to love with a broken heart Feet that learn again to walk Lips that learn again to talk Eyes that open up to see There is beauty to behold again Don't let go of love You're a saint not a sinner

Jacob carries Austin to the car for the first time He’s six pounds and twenty hours old Jacob looks at April and she’s tired but she’s smiling He helps her in the car and shuts the door He doublt checks the seatbelt on Austin’s brand new chair And kisses Austin’s tiny little head Do you realize that life will never be the same, never be the same again April doesn’t have to say “slow down” for the first time And it takes ten minutes longer to get home Funny how the baby in the back, so small, changes everything They pull up in the drive and a house becomes a home Austin’s gonna make you proud Austin’s gonna break your heart Austin’s gonna make you better than you were before

We’re almost out of things to say And we’ve both got work in the morning But I have had the longest day And you’re voice is what I need We should say goodnight and get some sleep And I’ll call you in the morning But I have had the longest day today I just want to know that your on the other side I won’t even mind if you fall asleep I just want to know that you’re on the other side So linger a little longer on the line We can talk about our days today We can talk about tomorrow And I wouldn’t mind another hour Of sleepy thoughts and sentences Drifting off before you reach the end And as we start to fade, our thoughts are making half as much sense And as we drift away, I’m thankful that you’re there

Oh little darling have you lost your way Oh little darling I feel for you I know it hurts but don’t believe in lies Your eyes are playing tricks on you You try to control, try to be beautiful But trying will let you down But whatever your lot I pray that you’ll sing “it is well…” Oh litte darling if you could only feel All of the love that we feel for you Oh little darling you would be amazed How many prayers are prayed for you And when you don’t have the voice to sing We will be singing for you “It is well with my soul”

Baby, slow down. You’re gonna crash if you don’t pay attention Looking for more than what you have And I know it’s easy to think that you’re missing something You don’t know how good you’ve got it Because life looks better when you just quit worrying about it all If you only knew you innocent heart was a thing of beauty You wouldn’t give it up so fast And I know it’s easy to think that you’re missing something, but Even the birds aren’t concerned with what they’re going to eat How much more precious you are to me
