Words & Music by Wes King
From the Album: A Room Full of Stories
1997 Uncle Ivan Music/Sparrow Song/BMI

G                       D/F#            C
We thought you’d be here by now
Your mother and I
G                              D/F#              C
We’re praying through our tears that somehow
We might hear your sweet cry
Em                         C
Have we waited too long
G                                 D/F#      E
It’s getting harder to be strong
C                                           D
Is there something we’ve done wrong

G        D         C
But if you like dancing
        D                  G             D              C           D
I'll make it rain rhythm, and rhyme, and melodies, child
G        D         C
And if you like dreaming
        D                  G             D              C           D
Your mother will make your imagination run wild
Em     C                                G            D/F#
Somehow, we thought you’d be here by now

We have a room just for you upstairsIt’s right down the hall
So we’ll be close should you ever get scared
We’ll come when you call
It’s a room full of stories
Waiting to be told
Longing to behold

And if you like laughing
I’ll paint you a circus of smiles and ferris wheels, dear
And if you like living
Your mother will fly you to worlds both far and near


I never knew the silence could make me so deaf
I never knew that I could miss someone I’ve never met
Miss someone I haven’t met yet

We’ll be waiting
