Lyrics: Do I Make You Proud? By Taylor Hicks

I’ve never been the one to raise my hand,
That was not me and now that’s who I am

Because of you I am standing tall,
My heart is full of endless gratitude,
You were the one, the one to guide me through,
Now I can see and I believe it’s only just beginning

Chorus-
This what we dream about
But the only question with me now
Is do I make you proud
Stronger than I’ve ever been NOW
Never been afraid of standing out
But do I make you proud

I guess I’ve learned, to question is to grow
That you still have faith, is all I need to know
I’ve learned to love, myself in spite of me
And I’ve learned to walk, the road that I believe

This what we dream about
But the only question with me now
Is do I make you proud
Stronger than I’ve ever been NOW
Never been afraid of standing out
But do I make you proud

Everybody needs to rise up
Everybody needs to be loved, to be loved

This what we dream about
But the only question with me now
Is do I make you proud
Stronger than I’ve ever been NOW
Never been afraid of standing out
But do I make you proud

This what we dream about
But the only question with me now
Is do I make you proud
Stronger than I’ve ever been NOW
Never been afraid of standing out
But do I make you proud

Do I make you proud?
Do I make you proud?

    What most people don’t know is that video was made by a then 14-year-old boy whose father and uncle are both retired Air Force NCOs…they helped him get the slides from the government, but the idea and juxtaposition were his!

    The young man is also a huge Taylor Hicks fan.

  2. Thanks Bonnie for the background info on this video. It is so powerful, and to think that a young man was moved and inspired to create this adds even more to its meaning.
