I do not own this music, nor the Footloose The Musical logo. The music is by Tom Snow (among others), and the lyrics are by Dean Pitchford (with additional lyrics by Kenny Loggins.)
Footloose is a favorite musical of mine, I first saw it at the Playmill theatre in West Yellowstone, and when I came home I wanted the music, but couldn't find it anywhere or even listen to it here on Youtube. Well, my friend found it (heaven knows where) and I decided to share it with you. Again, I own nothing.
Shaw Oh yes! He has all the answers! He's gonna set me straight How can he presume to know what I've been through? He hasn't got a clue! But how could anyone Unless they've had a son? As perfect as a child could be The best of all the best in me My brush with immortality My kid For sixteen winters and fifteen springs I had a son, and still it stings When I remember all the things We did Me and my kid Simple things like fishing at the lake Tip-toeing out before dawn Bobby would worry If we didn't hurry All of the fish would be gone We would sit and huddle in the boat Waiting for something to bite And I'd watch the sunrise In my own son's eyes And the world would fill up with light And Bobby would ask a million questions: "Daddy? How many is the biggest number?" or "Daddy, why do I have a thumb?" And I confess I didn't always have the answers I didn't always know which way was true Nevertheless I always tried to lead with love That's all that any father can do As the years went by we had our diff'rences (But then, who doesn't?) Even if the friendship wasn't all it was before We shared a lot And who'd have thought that so much joy Could vanish in a blink? Who ever stops to think? And in that final moment Who knows what went wrong? The questions come too late And linger far too long and I confess I don't always have the answers I don't always know which way is true Nevertheless I've always tried to lead with love It's all that any father can do And then look! Look! What do I do?! This boy comes to me This fatherless child I scoff at his pain and I send him away! My daughter speaks up And I shout her down I won't hear a word of what she has to say! My wife reaches out And I turn my back I send her to bed without even a kiss! Can my God forgive The things I have done While I've tried forgetting how much I'm still missing my son?
I'm tired of feeling nothing but numb Maybe the time has come To finally let the world in But how do I begin? Give me strength and maybe then I can reach my fellow men So we all may rise again (He stands before his congregation) I confess I don't always have the answers I don't always know which way is true Nevertheless I've always tried to lead with love Please, join me in asking our Lord to guide and protect our children.
