about

'Thank You' is a song I wrote for my wife and every woman who faces the risk of genetic breast cancer. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this track through 2009 will go to FacingOurRisk.org, the only national nonprofit organization helping families affected by hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Thank you for listening!

lyrics

I want to thank you
for not letting go of this
not getting yourself missed
I want to thank you
for not leaving us alone
and emptying our home
of love

'cause that's who you are
a wife and a mom
you get the bronze star
so grab the Nikon
and give us a smile
a smile that says

I want to thank you
for saving yourself first
I've seen you at your worst

I want to thank you
for getting black and blue
for all the things you do

So make no mistake
when life dropped a bomb
in spite of the risks
you fought like your mom
and now I can smile
a smile that says

Thank you for self sacrifice
(thank you for)
for victory at any price
(coming through that door)
for boys and creepy crawly things
(for boys who need their mom)
and gifts found waiting over seas
(and gifts still going strong)
mostly I just want to say
(mostly I just want)
that I can see your face today
(you to be around)
and that means more to me
than you can know

So make no mistake
when life dropped a bomb
in spite of the risks
you fought like your mom
and now I can smile
a smile that says...
