about

Written about my dad. Recorded for National Solo Album Month 2009, and my first crack at using electric guitar as the main instrument on a song.

lyrics

With slowing breath
Your last one weak
A crossword abandoned to kiss your cheek

The things I have left
A drill and a flag
A puzzle you made with your ink-stained hands

Sometimes I sense you
You're watching me still
You helped me like no one else ever will

Daddy I'm so so sorry
You thought we gave up on you
By relieving your pain and helping you through

Two angels calling to try to take you home
Please send them away for one more day

The things I have left
A shirt and a gauge
A photograph holding a fish at the lake

With slowing breath
Your last one weak
A crossword abandoned to kiss your cheek
