You were born three weeks early
And that is so like you to do
You came in March, just like a lion
Ahead of plan but right on cue

You’ve never been a fan of waiting
You’re always ready for what’s next
Too tough to be somebody’s baby
But I never will forget

The day we took you home and we were all alone
And Daddy held you on his chest
He whispered, “I don’t know how anyone leaves home,
how someone walks away from this.”

And the world looks better now
It’s more beautiful, somehow
‘Cause you were born, ’cause you were born

You showed up one day in April
Like a flower in the Spring
You grew to look just like your mother
You love to dance, you love to sing

When I see you, I see my childhood
We are very much the same
You showed up on that day in April
And we are all so glad you came

Because the world looks better now
It’s more beautiful, somehow
‘Cause you were born, ’cause you were born

You are everything I never knew I wanted
You’re my heart living outside of my chest
And when the world tries to dull the fire inside you
Remember who you are and don’t forget

That the world looks better now
It’s more beautiful, somehow
‘Cause you were born, ’cause you were born

Oh my world is better now
I can’t picture it without
Oh it’s so much better now
‘Cause you were born, ’cause you were born
