Michelle Wright — He Would Be Sixteen lyrics

(jill colucci/charlie black/austin roberts)
(track 5 - time 3:46)

She gets in her car october friday night
Home from work down 31 past franklin high
She can see the stadium lights she can hear the band
A thousand crazy high school kids screamin' in the stands
Quarterback and homecoming queen
Love to young to know what it means
She goes back in time oh in her mind it's like a dream

He would be would sixteen
The son she never knew
It hurt so much to give him up
But what else could she do
He would be sixteen

A child should have a home she knows her folks were right
She never heard the couple's name just that they were nice
She wonders if he's taller than his father was
Does he drive a car by now has he been in love
She shakes back to reality she knows
Things turn out the way they should be
But she just can help but ask herself does he know about me

He would be would sixteen
The son she never knew
It hurt so much to give him up
But what else could she do
He would be sixteen

She never even got to hold him
And nights like this hurts to miss
The son she's never seen
He would be sixteen
He would be sixteen
