    Lyrics

    The first night we brought you home, it scared me half to death.
    I stood right beside your crib and counted every breath.
    Lookin' at your little face, heaven seemed so close,
    It felt all right 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,
    An' hear the funny ways you talk.
    I wanna be there when you're three,
    An my wall's covered up with chalk.
    My only prayer: I wanna be there.

    I'd like to save some money so we could buy a bigger house.
    Worked harder at my job to make my family proud.
    A million things I've got in mind that I want to do.
    God willing, I've got time: that's what I'll give to you.

    I wanna be there when you're fifteen,
    And you're havin' your first date.
    I wanna be there when you're sixteen,
    And your heart's had it's first break.
    I wanna be there when you're seventeen,
    And think that you can't wait.
    My only prayer: I wanna be there.

    I wanna be there when my little girl.
    Was walkin' down the aisle.
    I wanna be there, fightin' back the tears,
    An' tryin' hard to smile..
    I wanna be there with your Momma,
    When you're havin' your first child..
    My only prayer: I wanna be there.

    My only prayer: I wanna be there.
