Lyrics: V1:
My daddy was my hero and my best friend
To me he walked on water the world was in his hands
It was a world he gave to me
And as far as a I could see
Life was turning out as I had planned
But it all came crashing down in the blink of an eye
When the doctor said my daddy wouldn’t live to see July
I remember his last words
One final lesson learned
And as the tears fell down from his eyes
He said…

If this is the price of love
If this is the price of the best things in this life
If this is the price of love
Then hear me out tonight
If this is the price of love
I’d pay it anytime

My best friend never had a Dad like mine
Still somehow his heart was bigger than a Monterey sunrise
And now his highschool love
Would take his name in a few months
And soon they would welcome their first child
I’d never seen him happier in his whole life
But one night they both realized that something wasn’t right
When they lost that baby girl
It seemed they lost their world
And I could hear the pain in his voice last night
When he said…

In that darkest hour one could easily lose faith
But a love this strong well it can bend but it can’t break
