Love Will lyrics: Hey, Hampton

After a night watching one of his bandmate’s kids, Will has a change of heart about having children of his own someday.

Hey, Hampton

Hey, Hampton
What a friend I have made today
Say, Hampton
Oh, how I’ve been led astray
But you showed me the way
Hey, Hampton

For years I’ve lived in dread and fear
Unsure of how I’ll be
Sometimes I think I’ve seen too much
Perhaps they’d ruined me

But just a short while spent with you
Has made me see the light
This funny, little, pale, blonde babe
Inspired me to write

Hey, Hampton
What a friend I have made today
Say, Hampton
Oh, how I’ve been led astray
But you showed me the way
Hey, Hampton

You’re a little like your daddy
In all of the good ways
You already have more hair than him
For that, I am amazed!

It doesn’t seem his OCD
Was passed down onto you
The socks you had to wear last night
One was green; one was blue

Hey, Hampton
What a friend I have made today
Say, Hampton
Oh, how I’ve been led astray
But you showed me the way
Hey, Hampton

Insecurity has held me back
Infidelity was in my bones
Addiction was a big concern
Love, not in my comfort zone

Were these things innate in me,
And would I pass them on
To any child doomed to be
The son of trouble’s spawn?

Your kindness is what I’d expect
From any child of his
And you insist on holding hands
When my hair wants for my fist

Hey, Hampton, you’re the very best
Of all that is my friend
You give me hope that a child of mine
Will be a good one in the end.

Hey, Hampton
What a friend I have made today
Say, Hampton
Oh, how I’ve been led astray
But you showed me the way
Hey, Hampton
