In Memory Of…

  • 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 Writer/s: NEIL BOSHART, SHANE TOLD
