Good Man Lyrics

by India Arie

I remember the first day I met you
We were so young
You were a blessing and there was no guessing
You were the one

Love is so crazy, we had a baby
And said our vows
That's when you told me should anything happen
I can hear you now, you told me

If the sun comes up
And I'm not home, be strong
If I'm not beside you
Do your best to carry on

Tell the kids about me
When they're old enough to understand
Tell them that their daddy
Was a good man

First anniversary remember we chose a star
And as I stand under it
I can't help but wonder
If you see it where you are?

For whatever reason
We don't see the seasons change again
Go there with peace of mind
We'll meet on the other side
'Cause true love don't end

Oh baby if the sun comes up
And you're not home, I'll be strong
If you're not beside me
I'll do my best to carry on

I'll tell the kids about you
When they're old enough to understand
I'll tell them that their daddy
Was a good man

Two eyes looking up at me
Pointing to the picture like, where is he?
Ma, are you okay? What did the paper say?
To make you cry that way

It said your daddy lived for you
And your daddy died for you
And I'll do the same

Now baby if the sun comes up
And I'm not home, be strong
If I'm not beside you
Do your best to carry on

And tell your kids about me
When they're old enough to understand
Tell them that your daddy
Was a good man
