Father to son love song. Dad: "You can do it alone, but the road is hard", Son, "leave me alone dad, I can do it myself.". Together were always stronger.


No Way Around It Lyrics by J Francis Olson 2014

I see you runnin so hard, trying to play that one card
But you’ve got no way around it, sooner or later your gonna have to play that game again.
Don’t give in…

You’ve got to pickup and try again… No matter what just don’t give in!
Sometimes the road seems so long, we just lose hope and carry on.
But when your weak you can be strong.
Don’t you know there was a time in my life when

I was like you, now you’re like me. Even the blind can see that were goin round and goin round yeah..

Sometimes were up , sometimes were down
Times like that you put your feet on the ground
Level your shoulders and search deep inside. And pick up the pieces hang on for the ride until you feel your heart again.

Ohhh I don’t wanna fight, or dance around the topic day and night.
Just tell me what’s the matter, what’s going on.
And I can sing you this love song,

Your part of me, I’m part of you, without you I’m less than me, without me your less than you.

When were together, well see it through tomorrow.
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I love you know and forever. I need you beside me
