A new song for August: “I Miss Them”

I wrote this one on a rainy day. Idle mind / devil’s playground sort of thing.

 

Yesterday, their mom said hi

Came to see if I’m all right

And I told her so

Now I can’t let go

Of the one thing on my mind…

 

I miss them

They grow too fast

Time moves on and I still ask

Forgiveness, when I get sad

I might be old, but I’m their dad

I look back on the times we had…

And I miss them

Man, I miss them…

 

I learn to live with the pain inside

Ocean deep and one mile wide

Lord knows, how hard I’ve tried

I still laugh, and I still cry

But not a day in life goes by

 

When I miss them

They grow too fast

Time moves on and I still ask

Forgiveness, when I get sad

I might be old, but I’m their dad

As I look back on the times we had

And think about how much

I miss them…

 

When the walls are cavin’ in

I think back and I begin

To understand the reasons why

I do my best to occupy

The days alone

Lost inside an empty home

 

‘Cause I miss them

They grow too fast

Time moves on and I still ask

Forgiveness, when I get sad

I might be old, but I’m their dad

As I look back on the times we had

And think about how much

I miss them…

Man I miss them…
