Song for My Father

  • How I wish that I could tell you
    It's to you that I would run
    You were the place that I could always rest my head
    When my world had come undone

    'Cause I've been wrestling with my demons
    They're telling me I have no choice
    How I wish that I could lean upon you now
    Amidst the chaos and the noise

    Your light buried the dark
    A constant unwavering heart

    You were the well to cool my fury
    Deep and calm your waters feel
    Your quiet words a salve to soothe my wayward soul
    It was there I learned to heal

    Your light buried the dark
    A constant unwavering heart

    Oh I hope that you can hear me
    Through the ravages of time
    You have carried me though more than you could know
    I still feel your hand in mine

    Your light buried the dark
    A constant unwavering heart

    Your light buried the dark
    A constant unwavering heart (Unwavering heart) Writer/s: Sarah Ann Mclachlan, Tom Douglas, Matthew B Morris
