Song Lyrics along with Inspiration from Marie...

Boy Doodling

HOW CAN I EVER THANK YOU?
 

Written By: Karen Loveless/Marie Siemens

 

V1:

I colored pretty pictures/With my Crayola crayons

I'd sign em' to Mom from me/They framed the fridge with TLC

You'd tuck me into bed and say/it's time for us to pray

You said the Lord would always be/Forever there for me

And so would you/no matter what/and in that I could trust
 

The heart prints of a mother to her son

 

C:

How can I ever thank you/for all that you've done

You've taught me so many things about unconditional love

Life lessons that I've learned from you/Will be carried on…
 

How Can I ever thank you enough?

 

V2:

The good ole' days of high school/I was hangin' with my friends

I didn't have much time for you/But somehow you always knew

That I would figure out life's maze/ it was a teenage phase

Runnin' round bein' wild/cuttin’ up like a child

When times we're rough/you would say/never will I go away
 

The teachings of Mother to her Son

 

C:

How can I ever thank you/For all that you've done

You've taught me so many things about unconditional love

Life lessons that I've learned from you/will be carried on
 

How Can I ever thank you enough?

 

Bridge

You've watched me grow from a boy into a man

And because of you I am who I am
 

Now that I'm a Dad I understand, so…

 

C:

"I just want to Thank You"/for all that you've done

You've taught me so many things about unconditional love

Life lessons that I've learned from you/are being carried on
 

How Can I ever thank you enough?
 

How Can I ever thank you enough?
