I was a child once
The fear of the world in my eyes
Far from the safety of the other side
I colored by numbers
Learned how to tie my own shoes
Like all the others
I was just
Afraid I'd make it through

[Chorus]
Oh mother look how your boy turned out
300 miles from that small town
You never stopped believing
Oh daddy
It hurt to watch you walkin' out
But understand it made me stronger now
And so satisfied
And so full of pride
Thank you
Here from
From the other side

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

I'll always remember the kids that I mean they've been
11 yrs old and I could
Could not fit in
But I made it through high school
And college according to plan
The pressure was never greater to become a man
Would I become a man?

[Chorus]

Mother look how your boy turned out.
300 miles from that small town
Daddy it hurt to watch u walkin' out
Hear the piano do the cryin' out
For all the preachers and the teachers now
For all the ones who never let me down

So satisfied
So full of pride
Standing here on
On the other side
Thank you here from
From the other side

Here on the other side
Taking my time
There's nothing to fear
There's nothing to worry about
On the other side

I remember when I thought I'd never find.
The other side
