Fighting tears, trembling voice straight to my ear A moment I'll never forget Someone I love, telling me someone I love Had just been called to his reward Twenty-four, a leader a father adored We'll never be with him again
Take me down to the garden behind the old house Sail away with me Words can be the most beautiful or the most cold I didn't know what to say To a father who suddenly loses his son I still think about that every day
Take me down to the garden behind the old house Sail away with me, break it down Trace the steps moving to gold town Lost your past from me Made the plans and backed out Stayed at home and did nothing
But now I'm taking the 400 up north The last time I'll ever see your face I don't want to believe that this is it I want to believe in something more Growing up wasn't easy for this boy Who only wanted to live and do what's right
I can't feel I can't feel my heart when I hurt myself I can't feel I can't feel the pain when I hurt my friends I can't feel But it's taking you further, and further away
Take me down to the garden behind the old house Sail away with me Break it down Trace the steps moving to gold town Lost your past from me From me Take me down to the garden behind the old house Sail away with me
