First Born

I got the news
yesterday afternoon
Nine months from now
the baby's due

She thinks I'm scared
I think she's right
My life is changing
but I see the future getting bright

I'm gonna be a dad
to a little boy or girl
I understand what my dad meant
When he said I was his only world

I can only hope
I'm as good as he
But at the same time
I pray my cihld doesn't end up like me

I've helped raise a few
In my 23 years
I've never been this nervous
I've never had this fear

Will I be a good father
they all tell me "yes"
Luckily I have a good mother
to help me with the rest
