about

My son, Wes, asked for a song for his wedding to Tiffany. I'd already written 3 wedding songs - I didn't know if I had another in me. Then he explained he wanted it from the parent's perspective! That was the key. Great Wedding song! Wonderful new family!!

lyrics

Fathers and Mothers
Word and Music by David E Ball

From a father to his son
From a mother to her daughter –
“I only want the best for you;
The best that life can offer.
So we must let you go –
We’ll let go of each other.”

From a mother to her son
From a father to his daughter –
Though it was hard to watch you grow,
Letting go’s even harder.
But we will let you go
To give your love to another!

As it’s been from the start
Is how it is and ever shall be –
A son shall take a bride
And together build a family.
So we will all let go,
Yet still cling even stronger;
Such is life’s carousel
For fathers and mothers.

From a daughter to her dad
From a son to his mother –
“We love you both so very much
But God’s provided another.”
We’re asking you, “Let love grow,
And embrace yet another.
Love fully one more child,
Dear father and mother."

As it’s been from the start
Is how it is and ever shall be –
A son shall take a bride
And together build a family.
So we will all let go,
Yet still cling even stronger;
Such is life’s carousel
For fathers and mothers.
Such is God’s paradox
For fathers and mothers.
