lyrics

Tell your Daddy I said, "Happy Birthday"
And your Momma I miss her, too
I wish your Daddy had just stopped drinking
So he could tell you how proud he is of you, and

I can't sing you to sleep anymore,
But you know I would.
You'll be fine, just dry your eyes
And may your dreams be, sweet like candy.

Even if I lived on the other side of the atmosphere,
You know I'd be right here, I would be right here
Even if we don't speak for 80-something years,
You know I'd be right here, I would be right here.

So, you take your train down to Jersey
And you find out where you were born,
And you cry in a field of daisies,
And figure it's time to mourn, after eight years.

I can't sing you to sleep anymore,
But you know I would.
You'll be fine, just dry your eyes
And may your dreams be, sweet like candy.

Even if the storybooks don't have us together in the end,
You know I'll be your friend, I will be your friend.
Even if it ain't the most popular trend,
I will be your friend, I will be your best friend.

Tell your heart it's gotta be quiet,
And let you sleep tonight.
I know what it's like to be getting through,
'Cause I'm trying with all my might, to forget that...

I can't sing you to sleep anymore,
I don’t think I should.
You'll be fine, just dry your eyes
And may your dreams be, sweet like candy.

Even if I marry some guy and he makes me feel all right,
You know, I'll love you for my life. I will love you for my life.
No matter how far forward I move past this strife,
You know I will love you for my life, I'll love you for my life.

And may your dreams be,
Sweet like candy.
