    Lyrics

    For the life of me
    You know I can't recall
    My father giving mighty words of wisdom
    But the more I live I see
    The greatest gift of all
    Is how I always knew for sure he was listening
    To a million questions I felt like a fool to ask
    And when I'd ask him for an answer, he'd just laugh

    And say the more I learn
    The more I learn how little that I know
    But I'm close to understanding
    Just how far I have to go
    We give our hearts
    We take our chances
    And know the fool ain't the one with all the questions
    To tell the truth,
    It's someone who believes they have the answers

    In the years since then
    When my children come
    Pouring out their hearts
    This old world has broken
    I do the listening
    I've seen what good it's done
    When less not more is spoken
    And when they press me hard to tell them what the answer is
    I remember well and simply offer this

    And say 'the more I learn
    The more I learn how little that I know
    But I'm close to understanding
    Just how far I have to go
    We give our hearts
    We take our chances
    And know the fool ain't the one with all the questions
    To tell the truth, it's someone who believes they have the answers

    And say 'the more I learn
    The more I learn how little that I know
    But I'm close to understanding
    Just how far I have to go
    We give our hearts
    We take our chances
    And know the fool ain't the one with all the questions
    To tell the truth,
    It's someone who believes they have the answers
