(Rick Springfield/Matt Bissonette)
Joshua, life is looking at you
Your destiny is calling itís no time to be shy
You can fly, do or die, let me hear your battle cry
Touch the sky, dream of fire
Looking through your tigerís eye
You can turn this thing around
Make no mistake this is your battleground
And youíre not standing on your own
Joshua, you were born for this chance
According to US
Rick wrote so many songs about Liam - like practically the whole Rock of Life album, that this song seems long overdue. It is so specific to his son, that I have a hard time connecting to it.
I love the rhyme between false bravado and incommunicado - he comes up with some of the best stuff.
Now, if you've heard Matt Bissonette's song "phone booth", this song might not be quite as touching and I kind of hope his son doesn't know that this song was a reworked song about Matt feeling sorry for phone booths because people don't use them anymore. Gee thanks Dad. - rlh
