Father to the Son   

i remember the time you said
a man must be tough to survive
and when you left us alone that day
i felt the pain, but i'm stronger now

'til the morning glory
fades from view
and the years take sight from my eyes
i'll remember all i learned from you
from the father to the son

when i was younger i thought that i
had grown to be my own man
now that i'm older, it's clear to me
you were the rock, beneath what i am

'til the morning glory
fades from view
and the years take sight from my eyes
i'll remember all i learned from you
from the father to the son

my eyes are open wide
i have you by my side
your voice rings in my head
there's no miscommunication of the words you said

'til the morning glory
fades from view
and the years take sight from my eyes
i'll remember all i learned from you
from the father to the son
