Eli’s Song

words & music by Chris LaVancher © 2012

Welcome home little man
We’ll raise you up the best we can
Come and take my hand
And walk with me through sacred lands

Don’t be afraid
Don’t turn away
I’m here to say

Live life, hold life
Take it in your hands
Live life, breathe life
Do all you can
There’s a great big world out there for you

We’ll sail the sea
We’ll build a house in that apple tree
I’ll teach you how to ride a bike
And if I have to how to fight

Don’t be afraid
Don’t turn away
I’m here to say

Live life, hold life
Take it in your hands
Live life, breathe life
Do all you can
There’s a great big world out there for you

And as you grow, we’ll grow with you
Through your eyes the world looks new
And when it’s time for you to go
Your mom and dad, oh we love you so

Don’t be afraid
Don’t turn away
I’m here to say

Live life, hold life
Take it in your hands
Live life, breathe life
Do all you can
There’s a great big world out there for you
