I'm looking back on everything that I have done
and I can't help but feel overcome with sincere pride in my decisions.
I'll disregard all of my mistakes and regrets;
forgive me if I do forget to note your contributions.
Because without you I couldn't do half the things that I have done.
It's just that lately I've been overwhelmed
with this thing we've called growing up.
So here's to you and everything you ever said,
every word inside my head, I owe it all to you.
I know I never can fully repay you,
but my hope is that this song will just have to do.
I know this is the hardest part of my life.
I swear I'll make it all up to you in time.
