about

"This is a song I wrote for my son. I sang it to him nightly for a few years, now he sings it back to me if I'm feeling down and it always puts a smile on my face."

lyrics

What have you done?
How could you bring into the world another son?

Was it my vanity that lead me to this place?
Pride got the best of me and left me in disgrace.
Must we perpetuate the lies we have begun
For there are none righteous among us here, no not one.

If I could see the future and what it holds for me
The only certainties are death, doom, and greed.
With all the anger, all the hate and all the lies
I'm surrounded by a world I despise.

But when you're standing at my side
I see the way the world's meant to be
There is a light that shines in your heart
And it guides me through the dark.

I knew my life would never be the same again;
I could feel it coming around the bend.
I never thought it would be this way;
I can say it gets better every day.

It's been so long now since you've made this house a home...
As long as I'm alive you'll never be alone.
But all the anger, all the hate, all the lies...
I'm surrounded by a world I despise.

But when you're standing at my side
I see the way the world's meant to be
There is a light that shines in your heart
And it guides me through the dark.
