about

A song for Ray Tomlinson, Cari's Dad.

lyrics

When I was young I'd stand
on top of your shoes
We'd slide across the kitchen floor
and dance around the room
These memories keep me strong
since that night bitter sweet so long
Oh, how I'm missing you
you, you, you, you.

I walk the streets of
my old neighborhood
up Inner drive into the park
and deep into the woods
where an eagle flew over head
across the frozen sky
and the trees stood black and bare
the way I felt inside
Oh, I was missing you,
you, you, you, you

Some day my sons will stand in my shoes
and they'll feel the way that I do

No one else can take
my fathers place
I see him in my silver hair
and the lines etched on my face
and the memories that keep me strong
since that night bitter sweet so long
these memories yeah that keep me strong
since that night bitter sweet so long
Oh, how I'm missing you
you, you, you, you
