Eva Mae I remember the day you that were born, it was the summer.
Your mum and dad called me up to say how proud they were,
Voices ringing with the love of a new born child,
Light shining in their eyes, expectant smiles.

Eva Mae your father and I have been friends for many years.
We watched the world around us change, hoped our hopes, feared our fears.
He asked me to watch you as you grow,
To hold your hand through the highs and lift you up through the lows.

Eva Mae, don’t you judge me too hard,
I tried to be a good man, make the best with what I’ve got.
Eva Mae, I will teach you what I know,
And watch over you everywhere that you go.

Eva Mae I have made many mistakes in my time;
I’ve burned my share of bridges, broken hearts, I’ve told lies.
I have not always followed my own advice.
I’ve fallen flat, but Eva, darling, sometimes that’s just life.

Eva Mae with the way that I am I might not much be around,
But I’ll stop in from time to time to share the things I’ve learned:
That you should keep your friends and family close, and you should always try to say yes;
That we can none of us ever be perfect, but Eva darling we can try our best.

So Eva Mae, I won’t ever judge you hard,
Just try to be a good girl, make the best with what you’ve got.
Eva Mae I will teach you what I know,
And watch over you everywhere that you go.
Everywhere you go.
