  • "FATHER AND SON"
  • (Guy Thomas) 1983

My dad passed away on 7-25-2010 and this song to him has now come full circle back to me and my son.

 

  • You never talked much
  • About your feelings
  • You never learned how
  • To let them show
  • I never asked you
  • If you were hurting
  • But one look in your eye
  • Told me it was so
  • We never went walking
  • By the water
  • And watched the ravens fly
  • As the sun died down
  • And talk of the secrets
  • That came between us
  • Like father and son
  •  
  • I know your Dad
  • Was even more mad
  • He passed the burden down
  • Onto your back
  • Generations of desperation
  • Now it's here with me
  • And it won't let go
  •  
  • You know I forgive you
  • You did all you could
  • But now it’s up to me
  • To bring down this wall
  • Built of silence
  • That stand between us
  • Father and son
  •  
  • How can I blame you
  • You did all you could
  • But I can't help thinkin'
  • How it might have been
  • If all of the secrets
  • Never came between us
  • Father and son
