You Will Be Here

you say the hardest thing's to know you won't be there
when the kids are big and skippin' through the square
to miss their wings, to miss their weddings, brings the tremors, brings the tears
but there's one thing you're forgetting, mama

you will be here, you'll be here
here and there and everywhere
you'll never disappear
you will be here

i guess the hole that just might hit you if you let it's
having no idea when or where you're headed
i know no one's gone there lightly, no one's brought a souvenir
but no matter where you might be finally

you will be here, you'll be here
here and there and everywhere
let's make it crystal clear
you will be here

so i'm glad you don't believe you're bound for heaven
or its ugly sister city down below
hate to have to wait to meet you at some gate
rather have you in the earth and wind
and hearts and homes you know

any child can see that i'll be devastated
not to have you in my arms'll be hell, i'll hate it
already makes my head, my heart hurt when i think of the new year
but the thought that gives me comfort's that i'm sure

you will be here, you'll be here
here and there and everywhere
you'll never disappear
you will be here
