(Spoken:) "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
