Father

Father, oh Father!
Hear me if you can
Is it true what they say,
That life is a dream?
I don’t understand
The things that make rain in my eyes
Are they real or are they lies?
You know I hear so much about you now
I’d give anything
To go on a little boat with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a little boat with you

Father, oh Father!
Guide me if you can
Or give me the chance to follow you home
I’m your son, but I wish I knew you
When you were young
Were you lonely as a boy?
You know I’d give so much to see you now
I’d go anywhere
Pick a little stick and walk with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a short walk with you

Father, oh Father!
You give me just a little hope
I feel something out there reaching for me
Well here I am!
Won’t you take me with you?
Out of this maze
And away from this place
Because it gets so cold and lonely here
I’ll do anything
To sit on a little rock with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a small rock with you

Show me show me show me the way
Before they grind me down
And bleach me grey
Send me power not to be afraid
And when I close my eyes
Let me see you once, in the light

Father, oh Father!
Hear me if you can
Is it true what they say,
That life is a dream?
