What Life Would Be Like
by Big Daddy Weave


My child, Ive hoped and Ive prayed for this very day
Since you were just a little one
And oh how my heart swells with pride
As I watch the man that youve become
But this life offers no guarantees
And though my time on this earth had to end
Im sure that your heart would know peace
If you could just see where I am

From here, the race has been run and loves already won
I see clearly the end and the start
From here, Im cheering you on
So live out each breath with all that youve got
And know until I hold you close
Ill be holding you dear in my heart
From here

Ive seen your tears as youve waited alone
Longing for that special one
And now all the waiting is done
As you gaze into her eyes
Seeing the reflection of love
Lifes road may seem rough up ahead
And for now you see only in part
So hold onto each other and know
That there is an end to the dark

Heaven is calling and my heart keeps longing
Looking so forward to the day
When well be together forever in eternity
Just you wait and see

(Mike Weaver, Mark Schultz)

Behind the Song:
Buff has been one of our biggest supporters, encouragers, and friends since the beginning of Big Daddy Weave. Buffs mom died a few years ago. She was an amazing woman. When Buff got engaged to be married he asked if Id be willing to write a special song for his wedding that would act as a remembrance for his mom. I had never written anything like this before. Fortunately, we were on tour with Mark Shultz, who is the master of these types of songs. He was an amazing teacher and his help on this song has given me even greater respect for the amazing songs he writes. Mike Weaver (Big Daddy Weave)
