lyrics

This song is about the conversation I had with a good friend over her first child. It had been mulled over for a while, and then it all came out the day that baby was born.

from Roadside Reflections, released March 21, 2016
I found out from others
and hearsay about the big news
and the blindside hit came from
my thoughts of the path you might choose

I wish I had courage
to pick up the phone and call you
but words weren't coming to mind
since you were eating for two

And I'll never be able to just look at you the same
because that phone conversation showed me the adult you became
seven pounds, fifteen ounces of reason to keep going strong
seven pounds, fifteen ounces of reason that lead to this song

And their opinions mean as much
as the hairs on my chin
let them run their mouths
but it won't even begin
to erase the respect that I carry inside foryou
and for all that you've done and what you still do

You fell in love with a guy
though not part of the plan
and I'm happy to know that
now he's become a man

And I'll never be able to just look at you the same
because that phone conversation showed me the adult you became
seven pounds, fifteen ounces of reason to keep going strong
seven pounds, fifteen ounces of reason that lead to this song
