Brad Paisley – He Didn’t Have To Be Lyrics

When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new,
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview.
My momma used to wonder if she’d ever meet someone
Who wouldn’t find out about me and then turn around and run.

I met the man i call my dad when i was five years old.
He took my mom out to the movie, and for once i got to go.
A few months later, i remember lying there in bed.
I overheard him pop the question,
And i prayed that she’d say yes

And then all of a sudden, oh it seemed so strange to me.
How we went from somthings missing to a family.
Looking back all i can say about all the things he did for me,
Is that i hope i’m at least half the dad he didn’t have to be

I met the girl that’s now my wife about three years ago.
We had the perfect marriage, but we wanted something more.
Now here i stand surrounded by our family and friends,
Crowded around the nursery window as they bring the baby in.

And now all of a sudden, oh it seems so strange to me.
How we’d gone from somthings missing to a family.
Looking through the glass,
I think about the man that’s standing next to me,
And i hope i’m at least half the dad that he didn’t have to be

And looking back all i can say about all the things he did for me
Is i hope i’m at least half the dad he didn’t have to be

Yeah, i hope i’m at least half the dad he didn’t have to be

Because he didn’t have to be

You know he didn’t have to be
