Light (Sleeping at Last Cover)

Years before I had my son, I cried because of this song, later I danced with my Mom to it during my wedding, and finally, I covered it to announce that my wife and I were expecting.

May these words be the first
To find your ears
The world is brighter than the sun
Now that you're here
Though your eyes will need some time to adjust
To the overwhelming light surrounding us

I'll give you everything I have
I'll teach you everything I know
I will always hold you close
But I will learn to let you go
I will soften every edge
I'll hold the world to it's best
With every heartbeat I have left
I will defend your every breath
And I'll do better

'–°ause you are loved
You are loved more than you know
I hereby pledge all of my days
To prove it so
Though your heart is far too young to realize
The unimaginable light you hold inside

I'll give you everything I have
I'll teach you everything I know
I will always hold you close
But I will learn to let you go
I will rearrange the stars
Pull 'em down to where you are
With every heartbeat I have left
I'll defend your every breath
