More Like You

"More Like You" was written for my Dad as his 65th birthday present and Father's Day. Raising a child (in my case, his first) could not have been easy. I am continually learning this fact all-to-well, since becoming a father myself. Looking at my own children, I see so clearly how my father gave everything he had for his children. He sacrificed nothing in raising us to be well-rounded, loving children. In everything I do and say with my own family, I see and hear my Dad's influence in all of my actions and words. I think that the song's lyrics clearly describe how I feel about my father. As the closing line says, "They say I'm more like you .. I hope my children see it, too, so they'll grow up to be More Like You."

Personal Bio:

Paul DeBrino never took any lessons - playing or singing - but, in his early 20's, discovered that he could do both.
He never claimed to possess American Idol talent but still enjoyed writing and performing whenever the opportunity presented itself.
He mostly writes Contemporary Christian and love songs/ballads, even though he has an extensive variety of genres on his personal Zune MP3 player.
His lifelong dream is to have a major artist professionally arrange, perform and record his material on their own CD (while gladly accepting royalties ~ smile).
Regardless, Paul hopes at least one of his songs finds a home in your heart.

All of his music is available at www.thesixtyone.com/PaulieD

Words and Music (c)2000 Paul DeBrino
Written and dedicated to my dad

Verse I: Things were kinda shaky
At seventeen years old
You were trying to make a man out of a child
You spoke your words of wisdom
All throughout the years
But it's only now I truly understand
You did the best you could with what you had

Chorus: Dad, are you proud of who I am ?
Dad, you are the man I am !!
You did much more than father me
You've always been my friend
And I thank you for being my dad

Verse II: I must have drove you crazy
With all the things I did
I was just a boy trying to find my way
But you always stood right by me
Following my dreams
Now all I am is because of you
‘Cause, through everything, I did just what you'd do
And so I say

(repeat chorus)

Bridge: When I finally found my way
What they said, I saw was true
And even though I've wondered far away
It hasn't changed their view

Chorus Variation / Ending:

I am more like you
They say I'm more like you
I hope my children see it, too
So they'll grow up to be
More Like You
