(Mel Tillis)

My children come sit here and hold to daddy's hands
For I must tell you something that I don't understand
Lately we've been living in the shadows of surprise
Since I'm not the only man in your mother's eyes.

I can't say it's my fault and I won't say it's hers
'Cause I might have neglected when her need for me occured
But we're still a family and must realize
That I'm not the only man in your mother's eyes.

No, I'm not the only man in her eyes anymore
And soon she'll be leaving, walking out the door.

And things won't be easy with her not around
And the shame that's now with us will be hard to live down
So children bear with me promise daddy you'll try
Since I'm not the only man in your mother's eyes.

Since I'm not the only man in your mother's eyes...
This song is from the album "She'll Be Hanging 'Round Somewhere [Kapp]".
