This song was inspired by my son - he has grown a lot in the last few years, and it's an ongoing learning experience being a father.

It's dedicated to Sarah Kane and her son - loyal fans since Simple Life!


He's growing fast, where has time gone?
He'll be a man before too long.
When he was wee it used to be
so easy to pick him up,
and that was good enough.

He's growing fast, he's not a child
Says he's been grown-up for a while.
He has dreams, and he has schemes
They start shaking when it's tough,
It's not good enough.

He'll fall apart right in front your eyes.
He'll steal your heart and he'll steal your lies.
As you turn away he'll steal your stuff,
If it's good enough.

He's growing fast, where has time gone?
He'll be a man before too long.
I love him so, and let him know
In between the other stuff.
Is it good enough?

All the time that the two of us spend.
Goes so fast, though we think it won't end.
When all is said and done will we be friends,
Is that good enough?
