"You know, every time I look in the mirror I see my Dad.
I think that's why this song means so much to me."

When I was young, my Dad would say "Come on son, let's go out and play"
Sometimes it seems like yesterday

And I'd climb up the closet shelf, when I was all by my-self 
Grab his hat and fix the brim, pretending I was him 

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

He always took care of Mom and me. We all cut down a Christmas tree 
He always had some time for me

Wind blows through the trees
Street lights, they still shine bright
Most things are the same
but I miss my Dad tonight

I walked by a Salvation Army store, saw a hat like my daddy wore       
Tried it on when I walked in, still trying to be like him 

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many years go by
No matter how many tears I cry
I still can't say goodbye
