When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new,
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview.
My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone
Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run.
I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old.
He took my mom out to the movie, and for once I got to go.
A few months later, I remember lying there in bed.
I overheard him pop the question,
And I prayed that she'd say yes
And then all of a sudden, oh it seemed so strange to me.
How we went from somthings missing to a family.
Looking back all I can say about all the things he did for me,
Is that I hope I'm at least half the dad he didn't have to be
I met the girl that's now my wife about three years ago.
We had the perfect marriage, but we wanted something more.
Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends,
Crowded around the nursery window as they bring the baby in.
And now all of a sudden, oh it seems so strange to me.
How we'd gone from somthings missing to a family.
Looking through the glass,
I think about the man that's standing next to me,
And I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be
And looking back all I can say about all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad he didn't have to be
Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad he didn't have to be
Because he didn't have to be
You know he didn't have to be

|Ohh.. be nice Gabe.
Anyways.. this is one of my husbands favorite songs, mostly because his best friends father was more of a father to him than his own dad was. He died a few months ago and ever since then (and before) this song just seemed to have a special meaning to him.

|My friend,Lyndsey, has two sisters. One is her twin and the other, Jesse, is her older half sister. So when everyone was in the car and this song came on around Father's Day, Jesse said to her step-dad "I dedicate this song to you, dad."
My step-dad is a pain in my butt!!!! I think i'll stick with my real dad!!!!
