    Here's a great new song by Five For Fighting(Superman, 100 years) about a dad and son. For all the "softies" out there like me.

    The Riddle

    There was a man back in '95
    Whose heart ran out of summers
    But before he died, I asked him

    Wait, what's the sense in life
    Come over me, Come over me

    He said,
    Son why you got to sing that tune
    Catch a Dylan song or some eclipse of the moon
    Let an angel swing and make you swoon
    Then you will see... You will see

    Then he said,

    Here's a riddle for you
    Find the Answer
    There's a reason for the world
    You and I...

    Picked up my kid from school today

    Did you learn anything cause in the world today
    You can't live in a castle far away
    Now talk to me, come talk to me

    He said,

    Dad I'm big but we're smaller than small
    In the scheme of things, well we're nothing at all
    Still every mother's child sings a lonely song
    So play with me, come play with me

    And Hey Dad
    Here's a riddle for you
    Find the Answer
    There's a reason for the world
    You and I...

    I said,

    Son for all I've told you
    When you get right down to the
    Reason for the world...
    Who am I?

    There are secrets that we still have left to find
    There have been mysteries from the beginning of time
    There are answers we're not wise enough to see

    He said… You looking for a clue I Love You free...

    The batter swings and the summer flies
    As I look into my angel's eyes
    A song plays on while the moon is hiding over me
    Something comes over me

    I guess we're big and I guess we're small
    If you think about it man you know we got it all
    Cause we're all we got on this bouncing ball
    And I love you free
    I love you freely

    Here's a riddle for you
    Find the Answer
    There's a reason for the world
    You and I...

    I love it.

    Hadn't heard it yet so had to listen to it because I love 100 years more than I can say & knew from reading the lyrics to this one, I'd like it. Thanks for posting that to "the Dads" but this mom thinks its nice too.
