  • I haven't seen my father in some time
    But his face is always staring back at me
    His heavy hands hang at the ends of my arms
    And my colors change like the sea

    But I don't worry much about time lost
    I'm not gunning for the dreams I couldn't find
    'Cause he taught me how to walk the best that I can
    On the road I've left behind

    But most of all
    He taught me to forgive
    How to keep a cool head
    How to love the one you're with
    And when I'm far into the distance
    And the pushing comes to shove
    To remember what comes back
    When you give away your love
    Give away your love
    When you give your love away
    Give away your love

    I haven't heard my mother's voice in a while
    But her words are always falling out my mouth
    My mind and spirit are at odds sometimes
    And they fight like the north and the south

    But I still care enough to bear the weight
    Of the heaviness to which my heart is tethered
    She taught me how to be strong and say goodbye
    And that love is forever

    But most of all
    She taught me how to fight
    How to move across the line
    Between the wrong and the right
    And when I'm turned out in the darkness
    And the pushing comes to shove
    To remember what comes back
    When you give away your love
    Give away your love
    When you give your love away
    Give away your love

    Give your love away
    Oh, give your love away
    And remember what comes back to you
    Give your love away
    Oh, give your love away
    And remember what comes back to you

    I haven't seen my father in some time
    But his face is always staring back at me
    His heavy hands swing at the ends of my arms
    And my colors change like the sea Writer/s: Brandi M. Carlile, Phillip John Hanseroth, Timothy Jay Hanseroth
