The first night we brought you home, it scared me half to death
I stood right beside your crib and counted every breath
Lookin' at your little face, Heaven seemed so close
It felt all right 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
An' hear the funny ways you talk

I wanna be there when you're three
An my wall's covered up with chalk
My only prayer, I wanna be there

I'd like to save some money, so we could buy a bigger house
Worked harder at my job to make my family proud
A million things I've got in mind, that I want to do
God willing, I've got time, that's what I'll give to you

I wanna be there when you're fifteen
And you're havin' your first date
I wanna be there when you're sixteen
And your heart's had it's first break

I wanna be there when you're seventeen
And think that you can't wait
My only prayer, I wanna be there

I wanna be there when my little girl
Was walkin' down the aisle
I wanna be there, fightin' back the tears
An' tryin' hard to smile

I wanna be there with your Momma
When you're havin' your first child
My only prayer, I wanna be there

My only prayer, I wanna be there
