LOVE, DAD (LYRICS)

And if I’m gone

I hope you’ll love me for me

For me

Say no goodbyes

One day you’ll fly with me

With me

 

(Hold me close)

So look up when you’re lonely

(Hold me close)

Heaven’s so close

(Hold me close)

And nothing lasts forever

(Hold me close)

I thought you should know

(Hold me close)

Be the breeze when the sun’s out

(Hold me close)

Still, your son when you’re cold

(Hold me close)

And I know it hurts but I’m home

 

Everything’s alright now don’t you cry

When you’re staring at the moon

On the other side that’s me

We can't forget we all run out of time (but hey)

You gave up half your life so

Make me your foundation

I'll be waiting patiently

I am your creation

We know where they're taking me

 

And if I’m gone

I hope you’ll love me for me

For me

Say no goodbyes

One day you’ll fly you'll see

You'll see (yeah)

 

(Hold me close)

So look up when you’re lonely

(Hold me close)

Heaven’s so close

(Hold me close)

And nothing lasts forever

(Hold me close)

I thought you should know

(Hold me close)

Be the breeze when the sun’s out

(Hold me close)

Still your son when you’re cold

(Hold me close)

And I know it hurts but I’m home

 

And there's innocent people dying

Living in a world that's so damn cold

Too busy looking in the mirror

When too many don't have homes

So quit saving all your sorry's

We're not promised tomorrow

C'mon learn from my mistakes

Don't you wait until your old

 

So mothers

Tell your sons you love 'em

Even when they fuck up

You only got each other

Now fathers

Take care of your daughters

It's the way their brought up

They're just tryin' find ya in someone

 

Yesterday I found my way

Through the shade of shadows

To the golden gates

Yesterday I saw my face

Reflecting off sorrows

Restoring my faith

Through the night she calls my name

Saying please come home with me

When the street lights gloom and start to fade

Will you please come home with me

 

Through the night she calls my name

Saying please come home with me

When the street lights gloom and start to fade

Will you please come home with me

 

Love you dog (Harry)

Me too doggy boy (Dad)
