Verse 1: When he speaks he's sure no one will listen,
He's troubled, trying his best to understand
Why his daddy says he's not, his real son..
That his brother is the only real one.

Chorus: Now the only thing he had to look up to
before I came to take his hand..
was his daddy's empty shoes
where there should have been standin'
a real man.....

Verse 2 : Today He slipped and called me Daddy
I could see that he was afraid,
I'd turn my back but son you will see
This Dad is here to stay.

Chorus: Now the only thing he had to look up to
before I came to take his hand
was his Daddy's empty shoes
where there should have been standin'
a real man.

Verse 3: Now when he speaks, I'm right here to listen.
And I walk so proud in those shoes
Bridge: If you see a pair sitting empty
and your afraid your gonna loose
Just remember that little boy starin'
At that pair of empty shoes.
Just remember that little boy starin'
At that pair of Empty Shoes.....mm...mmm...(end)
