I Wanna Be There (Alabama)

The first night we brought you home You scared me half to death I stood right beside your crib And counted every breath Looking at your little face Heaven seems so close It felt alright to ask the Lord For what I want the most I wanna be there When you’re one And you’re just learning how to walk I wanna be there When you’re two And hear the funny way you talk I wanna be there When you’re three And my wall’s covered up with chalk My only prayer I wanna be there Well I’d like to save some money So we can build a bigger house Work harder at my job And make my family proud A million things I’ve got in mind That I wanna do God’s will, and I’ve got time That’s what I’ll give to you I wanna be there When you’re one And you’re just learning how to walk I wanna be there When you’re two And hear the funny way you talk I wanna be there When you’re three And my wall’s covered up with chalk My only prayer I wanna be there I wanna be there When my little girl is walking down the aisle I wanna be there Fighting back the tears and trying hard to smile I wanna be there With your momma when you’re having your first child My only prayer I wanna be there
