lyrics

What could a father feel
Right there at life’s very dawn
We strode on our little century unfettered
Wild in youth so strong

Your kid oh so sharp was he
His brother’s every step a stomp
Grins wide as ever mouths could be
Never one could fade or so we thought

Good god was it yesterday
We had just birthed our second son
All the bright night our boys still play
I jumped awake and off you’d gone

How young in 63
We’d load our wagons back to front
Squeezed tight in our leather seats
And all the way sleep in the outdoors

Snips of a finer memory in a color film
No audio what words
Spun round the shot i mouthed it plain
Said what a fine young gal I’ve taken home

Good god was it yesterday
We had just birthed our second son
All the bright night our boys still play
I jumped awake and off you’d gone
Yesterday
So light near weightless as it was
Floated off blown away
My every sleep i’ll chase it down

Every sleep scenes play on
Past your passing, past your passing
Some are old, most are real
Past your passing, past your passing

In this week’s episode off you walked
Through the weeds and a mist come ‘round
Whispers squeak out and the light fell down
Off my sweetest I guess I get it

Good god was it yesterday
We had just birthed our second son
All the bright night our boys still play
I jumped awake and off you’d gone
Yesterday
So light near weightless as it was
Floated off blown away
My every sleep i’ll chase it down

What could a father feel
Right there at life’s very dawn
My loadstone, our little century
Ever one step late and ever drawn
