O're the life of me 
Ya know I can't recall
My father giving mighty words of wisdom
But the more I live I see
The greatest gift of all
Is how I always knew for sure
He was Listening
To a million questions 
I felt like a fool to ask
When I'd ask him for an answer
He'd just laugh

And say the more I learn the more I learn how little that I know
But I'm close to understanding
Just how far I have to go
We give our hearts
We take our chances
And know the fool ain't the one 
With all the questions
To tell the truth it's someone who 
Believes they have the answer

In the years since then 
When my children come
Pouring out their hearts
This old world has broken
I do the listening 
I see what good it does
When less not more is spoken
And when they press me hard to tell them 
What the answer is
I remember well and simply 
Offer this

And say the more I learn the more I learn how little that I know
But I'm close to understanding
Just how far I have to go
We give our hearts
We take our chances
And know the fool ain't the one 
With all the questions
To tell the truth it's someone who 
Believes they have the answer

And say the more I learn the more I learn how little that I know
But I'm close to understanding
Just how far I have to go
We give our hearts
We take our chances
And know the fool ain't the one 
With all the questions
To tell the truth it's someone who 
Believes they have the answer
