Carry Me Daddy, 1989
Carry me daddy, all the way home. I’ll lean on your shoulder, even after I’ve grown. And when me get there, tuck me in bed. I’ll still be your son, even after you’re dead. While I am dreaming, sing me a tune. A song of my birthright, the sun and the moon.
My Father Could Walk in the Sky, 1989
My father could walk in the sky. He promised to teach me how. But he left without saying goodbye. I don’t cry. I’m a grown up now.
