Description
It all started around fathers day when we all went to get our passport photos taken. My sons picture revealed an older, less innocent boy than I see on a day to day basis. Summer is here, he has become in more ways,”of the world” and I miss him already…and I welcome what he is and will become…The day to day. And this is where this song was born.

Lyrics
I bought you shorts and a second hand shirt
I straightened up your room while you were gone
Some changes I will never see
You will be forever young

I watch my neighbors drink beer and smoke
I think about the times that I would do the same
Some circumstances change
I have no crystal ball
But I can see a change is going to come

Ah, here comes a boy

I Watch the day turn away And set my sights on hold
The radio goes silent
The end of another day
Went I close my eyes I see the snow is falling
I can see a change is going to come

Hush little baby don't you cry
We all got our eyes on you

Tomorrow I will wake up and do it again
Tomorrow I will Try, try and do it better

Ah, here comes a boy
here comes a boy
here comes a boy

I bought you shorts and a second hand shirt
I straightened up your room while you were gone
Some changes I will never see
You will be forever young

Hahha !
Great song !! Can absolutely relate having two sons...now 21 & 23, the teens are like they're cycling on very narrow board across the water deep down... It's awesome once they get through - enjoyed the teens too, don't get me wrong, but when you know what's out there do to own experience it's nervwrecking attimes. This is so beautiful, you really captured it ! Thankyou so much - you have a great voice !

Interesting change up from a light acoustic freeform to the sparse, Stones vibe. You work the transitions well and develop a catchy hook. Good theme for a song that many of us can relate to. Your lyrics and arrangements are always engaging, Tim. No exception here. Thanks, Peter.

Wrong footed
I didn't expect the rock song!

I never had a son but in many ways it works with a daughter as well!

Cheers

There goes that Dad
Passport photos? Where are ya going?

They grow up so fast. Good subject for a song.

I like that filtered effect on the vocals. And using an electric guitar on an acoustic rock song. Nice singing and playing.
