Disconnected, Distant
He can't be your child
Only when you have the time

Step Up
Pull your life together
Don't think he doesn't know
Where you are

He opened the present you sent him
And all at the party
Avoided your name

Maybe you
Didn't expect him
But he's here; please try to accept him

Step Up
And get your life together
He's not so na've
he doesn't know where you are

He's no perfect angel
And I know
you love him

But love can't be
The only thing
You've got to give

Step Up
And get your life together
Don't think for a minute
He doesn't know where you are

You know right from wrong
Life is all choices
Your son and your life
Are not the same

He'll turn six just once
You missed that today
For your choice

Step Up
Pull yourself together
Nobody told him
But he knows where you are.

Disconnected, Distant
Come on, get it together!
He can't be your child
Only when you have the time.
