What would I do

If my dad left my brother

Because he couldn’t deal with his pain

Or the crazy of my mother?


Blood never mattered

But now does it change

Because my brother has grown

And he’s a little bit strange?


He’s not a baby anymore

But he still needs his dad

It doesn’t matter if he’s different

You’re the best he’s ever had


Just because you don’t share blood

Doesn’t make him any less your kid

It’s because of you he’s so happy

The good things that you did


When you rocked him to sleep

Sang softly in his ear

He knew his dad would protect him

Keep him safe from any fear


You’ve done more than his donor ever did

Keeping him safe when he wasn’t even your kid

You can’t back out now, it’s just too late

You being in his life was all a plan of fate


Now you know that I love you

For some inexplicable reason

But I swear to God if you leave him

It’d be like committing treason 


Don’t you ever leave him behind

No matter what, he needs you

Don’t pretend like you don’t know

Because I know that you do


That is your son, Dad

And he always will be

If you value your kids

Then you’ll listen to me


Take care of that boy

Take care of his heart

Raise him to be brave

Raise him to be smart


Just sit there and listen

When he tells you about his day

Please, just never leave him

Please, just stay
