Even Though I'm Leaving

Daddy, I'm afraid, won't you stay a little while?
Keep me safe 'cause there's monsters right outside
Daddy, please don't go, I don't wanna be alone
'Cause the second that you're gone they're gonna know
Before he went to bed, he grabbed my hand and said

"Just 'cause I'm leaving
It don't mean that I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay, I know you're scared
When I'm not here, but I'll always be right there
Even though I'm leaving
I ain't going nowhere"

Dad, we've all been late and Uncle Sam don't like to wait
He's got a big old plane that's gonna take me far away
I know I act tough but there's a churning in my gut
'Cause I just can't call you up when things get rough
Before I left, he hugged my neck and said

"Just 'cause you're leaving
It don't mean that I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay, I know you're scared
I might be here, but I'll always be right there
Even though you're leaving
I ain't going nowhere"

Daddy, I'm afraid, won't you stay a little while?
I never thought I'd see the day I had to say goodbye
Daddy, please don't go, I can't do this on my own
There's no way that I can walk this road alone
Daddy grabbed my hand and said

"Just 'cause I'm leaving
It don't mean that I won't be right by your side
When you need me
And you can't see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It's okay, boy, I ain't scared
I won't be here
But I'll always be right there
Even though I'm leaving
I ain't going nowhere"

I ain't going nowhere
