Now Playing Tracks

I do like a simple song
Where everyone can sing along
It doesn’t matter where you’re from
Most people like a simple song

It sure is sweet to fall in love
Feels like a gift from up above
Can’t seem to ever get enough
Yeah it sure is cool to fall in love

But things don’t often stay the same
She says she wants to give you back your name
It’s never simple who’s to blame
And it always gets so complicated

One day you wake up on your own
If I had kis they’d all be grown
Of all the people I have known
True friends there’s not too many

But I don’t want to bring you down
And I still get to play from town to town
There still is magic all around
And when I hit the ground I’m running

I don’t want to die alone
Where I cannot reach the phone
In my multi-story home
No I don’t want to die alone

It’s not preyin’ on my mind
But I do think about it from time to time
And it’s not likely to happen soon
But you may not even see it coming

So help me sing this simple song
Where everyone can sing along
It doesn’t natter where you’re from
One day we’re here and then we’re gone

Dear father I’ve got your photographs
Thank God for photographs hip hip hooray

Dear father I know you loved to laugh though
In most of your photographs it didn’t seem that way

Dear father I can’t let you go just yet
And I still can’t forget you walking around

Dear father you’re starring in my dreams
And you’re stealing all the scenes where did you go?

In my wandering mind I stumble through time
I sing through the air I look for you there

Dear father I never got to say goodbye
I was singing on the River Clyde and I didn’t know

Dear father I see you dancing still
And I think I always will till the day I die

Dear father I feel your healing hands
As I fall asleep I can plain as the day

Dear father you’re in my reflection now
As I reach out and touch you now where did you go?

Dear father I am still curious why
You still make me furious it was so long ago

Dear father I’ve got your photographs
Thank God for photographs hip hip hooray

Relatively soon, I will die. Maybe in 20 years, maybe tomorrow, it doesn’t matter. Once I am dead and everyone who knew me dies too, it will be as though I never existed. What difference has my life made to anyone. None that I can think of. None at all.
