I really thought he’d be here
Buying me my very first beer
Asking for a dance on my wedding day
Smiling at the girl who caught the bouquet
Thought he’d be there holding my first baby
Thought for sure, not even maybe..

And Katie thought he’d be here
Helping with her party when it came near
Asking her to ride that brand new coaster
And Ry still wants his toast in the toaster
Thought he’d always laugh
Laugh with her about that..

And Shelby thought he’d be here
She thought he might even shed a tear
On that day when he’d give her away
It was always him and her together
Through the good and the bad weather
Just thought he’d be there
When the rice flew through her hair

And Ryan thought he’d be here
Maybe help him sneak a beer
Thought he’d teach him how to drive
Teach a young boy to survive
He’d always smile at him and say
You’ll learn to do that someday

But he’s not here anymore
There’s no more knocking at his door
We can reminisce with all we’ve got
But our hearts are still tied in a knot
