Lyric

You are my pride and joy
You are my everything
When I look in your eyes
I see the best of me
Days are filled with hope
For all that you might do
Whatever that might be
I'll be so proud of you

Whenever you are down
I will be around
To wipe your tears away
To greet a brand new day

You are my pride and joy
You are my everything
When I look in your eyes
I see the best indeed

And the best is yet to be
With each new rising sun
Your dreams are within reach
So grab them when they come

You are my pride and joy
You are my everything
When I look in your eyes
I see the best indeed
My days are filled with hope
For all that you might do
Whatever that might be
I'll be so proud of you

I am so proud of you

About You Are My Pride and Joy

This was written for Allye when she was 14, going through difficult times. I didn't know what was going on, but I thought she needed to know her dad was proud of her.

Recordings

Bryan Baker: vocal, electric piano

This is the original home recording recorded live with electric piano and vocal. There was some urgency in making this as I was sensing Allye was in need of something to help her through whatever it was she was going through. It took her several a years to share with me what was going on at the time and I don't know if sharing this song with her helped or actually made things worse. Probably the latter, but you dont often know for sure what to do to help your kids. Especially when you're a foolish middle aged man like me.
