They don't care
If you brush your hair
They just care
That you're there
They don't mind
If you stay upstairs
They just care
That you're there

They don't know
If you're all
You've ever
Wanted to be
Or if life
Has answered
Your prayers

[Chorus]
They just want you
To be there
They just want you
To be there

They don't mind
If you're mad and yell
As long
As it's not at them
Doesn't matter you're sad
They can tell
It's not because of them

They don't know
That you're striving
To be someone
And you're not sure
How you will fare

[Chorus]

They just want you
To be there

Just as long
As you're
Somewhat right
You can do no wrong
Their trusting eyes
Looking up at you
Believing
You're so strong

They don't know
That in time
They'll grow
Into your shoes
They'll pound
The ground
And they'll swear
But they'll want you
To be there

[Chorus]

And you know
I know
You know, I know
It's clear
A thousand percent
For you
I am, I am
I'm here

And you know
I know, I know you
Know it's clear
A thousand percent
For you I am
I am I'm here
A thousand percent
For you
I am, I am
I am, I'm here
And I know
I know, I know
And I know, I know
It's clear
And I know, I know
I know, it's clear
