You're sleeping, son, I know
But, really this can't wait
I wanted to explain
Before it gets too late

For your mother and me
Love has finally died
This is no happy home
But God knows how I've tried

Because you're all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy

I know it's hard to understand
Why did we ever start?
We're more like strangers now
Each acting out a part

I have laughed, I have cried
I have lost every game
Ive taken all that I can take
But I'll stay just the same

Because you're all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy

Sleep on, you haven't heard a word
Perhaps it's just as well
Why spoil your little dreams?
Why put you through that hell?

Life is no fairytale
As one day you will know
But now you're just a child
I'll stay here and watch you grow

Because you're all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy

Because you're all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy
My boy
