Ben Rector - Hank Lyrics

To a boy who looks just like his mother
Who's a sister to her brother
Who sings this song to that boy from far away
I am young but you are younger
Till you speak more words than mumble
You have to lend an ear to everything I say.
So be kind and love your mother and your father
Though sometimes they seem to bother
Come my age and you'll know
They’re the ones who'll always love you and support you
They prayed for you before you stepped foot into this world
That's one thing that I've learned
I remember you were walking
In a month I'll hear you talking
There's a million things I'd love to say to you.
Though your parents, they are wiser
And will be better advisers
Maybe hearing these things twice will get them through
Go and find a girl for whom your love is selfless
Someone who makes you helpless
To change the way you feel
But stay away from girls who always look so pretty
Whose hearts just aren't fitting for the man in you I see
Would you remember that for me?
When you find yourself alone in times of trouble
Reach inside you and above you
There’s nothing He can’t heal
If it is you do not end up with a brother
Just call this older uncle
I would always lend an ear
Would you remember that from me?
Would you remember that from me?
