A Happy Tear In My Eye

Written by: Joe Flach

Noises from the backyard
Where fireflies are being chased
Aromas from the kitchen
Promise my hunger will be erased

Musical notes from the baby grand
Practicing without a fight
I love being a family man
When day turns into night

The soapy smell of just washed hair
As I read a bedtime story
Walking through the bedroom maze
Of not yet picked up toys

A goodnight kiss from toothpaste lips
Hearing my wife sing a lullaby
As lights turn out, without a doubt
That's a happy tear in my eye
