07. Only Wanted

We Can't Stand Sitting Down
by Stellar Kart


I watched you growing up
Living out the dream I had in mind
Until I messed it up
Making you believe in what was mine

I know I pushed too hard
To make you more than who you really are
Letís go back to the start
I know I went too far, I went too far

I only wanted you to have
More than I could ever dream of
I only wanted you to know
Everything I know and then some
I only wanted you to be
More than I could ever become
I only wanted, I only wanted you

So now weíre far away
Holding on to miles that separate
Still waiting for the day
To say itís not too late, itís not too late

I know itís not what you want to hear
Nothing makes up for all the years
I pray for the day you see
I tried to raise you the best I know
Now thereís only one thing I can hope
You donít end up just like me

Written by Adam Agee / Jordan Messer

Behind the Song:
"This song was inspired by a father/son relationship of some people very close to me. The song is written from the father's perspective about how he tried to do all the right things when raising his son, only to see their relationship crumble as they grew older. The father only wanted what was best for the son and is trying to explain his point of view in this heartbreaking song." - Adam Agee (Stellar Kart)
