A Song for a Son

Album: Teargarden by Kaleidyscope (2009)
  • This is a song for a son
    This is a song for a sailor
    The best I ever had
    This is a song for a kid
    This is a song for a tailor
    Who stitched up my old hearts
    Who stitched up my old hearts

    And I
    I am one of many, many more to come
    Many more to come
    I am one of many, many more to come
    Many more to come

    This is a song for a dove
    This is a song for a blown out bird
    The kind that don't return to the nest
    This is a song for a star
    This is a song for a space invader
    Who flew into the sun
    Never to return
    Never to return

    I am one of many, many more to come
    Many more to come
    I am one of many more, many more to come
    Many more to come

    This is a song for a son
    This is a song for a sailor
    The son I never had
    He sailed without a map
    This is a song for that kid
    This is a song for that tailor
    Who stitched up my old hearts
    Before I broke it all
    All apart

    I am one of many, many more to come
    Many more to come
    I am one of many more, many more to come
    Many more to come

    Ye daughters of the revolution
    Carry back your sons
    Carry them back home

    Ye daughters of the revolution
    Carry back your sons home

    This is a song for a son
    This is a song for a sailor
    The best I ever had
    He sailed without a map
