Boy Becomes a Man - Emerson Drive

I was only twelve years old
The day was warm, my heart went cold
Mama said, your daddy's gone
Son, you're gonna have to grow up fast
The two of us is all we have
I need you to be strong

That's the day a boy became a man
Every broken road and stepping stone
Has made me who I am
I learned to love, I learned to cry
And even how to say goodbye
And I'm still trying to understand
How a boy became a man

She was only seventeen
The prettiest girl I'd ever seen
On a blanket underneath the stars
By the river we got swept away
In just one night my whole life changed
We should have never gone that far

That's the day a boy became a man
Every broken road and stepping stone
Has made me who I am
I learned to love, I learned to laugh
How to give someone all I have
And I'm still trying to understand
How a boy became a man

On the day we swore our love
In front of God and everyone

That's the day a boy became a man
With an angel walking by my side
And a baby in my hand
I learned to laugh, I learned to cry
And just be thankful for this life
And I think I finally understand
How a boy becomes a man
