Shovel In Hand

Album: How Mercy Looks From Here (2013)
  • Life can change in the blink of an eye
    You don't know when and you don't know why
    "Forever Young" is a big fat lie
    For the one who lives and the one who dies

    I watched my son - shovel in hand
    Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
    The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
    Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
    Oh, goodbye two boys, hello one man

    This son of mine is gonna leave in the fall
    Some might ask how he stands so tall
    His life was changed with a telephone call
    Not even he understands it all

    I watched my son - shovel in hand
    Go from bulletproof boy to a broken man
    The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
    Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
    Oh, goodbye two boys, hello one man

    I watched my son - shovel in hand
    Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
    The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
    Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
    Oh, goodbye two boys,
    Oh, goodbye two boys,
    Oh, goodbye my boys Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
