Lyrics

This next song is about my father, Joe Mineo, the legend



Look August 23rd, how could I forget it?

Getting ready in my suite, it's the morning of my wedding

Invited all my legends, man it's set to be epic

And then I got that message I was dreading

My momma said it, "Andy I don't think your father gon' come"

I just laugh, said "oh well," and tried to be numb

I learned to stop getting hopes up

As a kid, growing up, that made the let down easy, when he didn't show up

But deep down I had this flicker of hope

This one time he pull it together, make a effort but nope

I'm standing at the altar, he nowhere in sight

How I'm thinking about him now instead of my wife

Best man Ray to my right said "you'll be alright

At least you know you're gonna be smashing tonight"

Then the doors open in the back, wearing all white

This the first day of the rest of our life

Father by her side while she came down the aisle

She's was looking all ow, then we exchanged vows

Long winded self, should have passed me a towel

We both said "I do," we team Mineo now



So, everyone, everyone smile for the family photo

But everyone, everyone ain't really in the picture

So, everyone, everyone smile for the family photo

But everyone, everyone ain't really in the picture



Now the ceremonies done, I know it sound dumb

But I thought he might come because the night was still young

I couldn't feel this space was like a hundred to play

I kept it just in case he praying he show up late

Then I wait, and I wait

I looked Cris in the face and tell her nothings gonna ruin our day

I hate the fact I still love you

I wish that I could turn you off, take the cord to my heart and just unplug you

Damn man, you my dad, what I did to ya?

To make you not love, mean what I should to ya

Look I don't understand, I'd jump off a bridge, I'd take a bullet to the rib before I'd hurt my kid

You know that Mark told me something that I won't ever forget

Sounded just like you, that's how I know it's

Legit

You know you go to Andy's football games but not lacrosse

Why, you told him you don't like that sport

Well do you like me, it's sad I got to ask

You either cry or you try to learn to laugh

Look I figured I'd be past this hurt by now

But after all this time it's only worse right now

'Cause when you bury emotions, you bury them alive

They only come back stronger, somewhere later in your life

And on the honeymoon, I got your text

But I ain't reply

Said "congratulation" like what a guy

I ain't ask you to be perfect, that's only God

I just wished you would have tried



So, everyone, everyone smile for the family photo

But everyone, everyone ain't really in the picture

So, everyone, everyone smile for the family photo

But everyone, everyone ain't really in the picture



God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change

Courage to change the things I can

And wisdom to know the difference

Living one day at a time

Enjoying one moment at a time

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace

Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world

As it is, not as I would have it

Trusting that He will make all things right

If I surrender to His Will

That I may be reasonably happy in this life

And supremely happy with You

Forever in the next

Amen, amen, amen
