Better Than This

It’s Wednesday night
He’s out at the bar with the guys
Instead of being at home
Tucking his little girl in
Reading her Green Eggs & Ham

A little voice tries to speak to him
He hears it
You know where you belong
You’re better than this
But I’m not sure I can do it

I’m not ready
He tells himself
I can’t do this
There’s a part of him that wants to
But a bigger part that’s scared

A little voice tries to speak to him
He hears it
You know where you belong
You’re better than this
But I’m not sure I can do it

What if I mess up?
What if I fail her?
I want to be there
To give her everything she needs
To be the father she deserves

A little voice tries to speak to him
He hears it
You know where you belong
You’re better than this
But I’m not sure I can do it

As time passes
He finds himself going out less and less
He found a decent job
Saving money to get the place he’s been eyeing
The one with the big yard

A little voice tries to speak to him
He hears it
You know where you belong
You’re better than this
Maybe I can do this

His buddies call
Asking to him to tie one on after work
He passes and heads home
Her room is nearly finished
He looks at it, wishing she were there

A little voice tries to speak to him
He hears it
You know where you belong
You’re better than this
I want to do this

The house is a mess
Her homework is scattered on the floor
Dishes in the sink from a big family dinner
She sits there trying to figure out a math problem
He walks over to help her

A little voice tries to speak to him
He hears it
You know where you belong
You’re better than this
I know I can do this

It took awhile
A lot of growing up
Changes were made
Now he is the parent he’s dreamed of being
And the man he was destined to be

A little voice tries to speak to him
He hears it
You’re finally where you belong
Yes, she’s home
She’s where she belongs
